Head width of English criminals

February 5, 2008

Klein seminar

The speaker wishes to emphasize that it is quite important to let the facts speak for themselves, before approaching them with any particular interpretation. Since several talks of theoretical content now follow, the speaker believes himself to carry out a rewarding task by reporting straightforwardly on several statistical and anthropological observations from the geometric point of view. The observations concerning humans are twofold: on the one hand as beings endowed with a differentiated psychical capacity, and on the other hand as objects of zoological research in the broadest sense of the word.


From a speech “Head width of English criminals” at one of Felix Klein’s mathematical seminars.
