Materials of the Mind

James Poskett

University of Chicago Press

The epilogue examines the history of phrenology in early twentieth-century China. In doing so, it argues that global history can help us rethink both the geography and the chronology of the history of science. The chapter also develops a broader argument about the writing of global history. It suggests that global intellectual histories need to be grounded much more firmly in material culture.

Keywords:   China, phrenology, Shanghai, race, chronology, global history, intellectual history, political thought, history of science
