Rep Grijalva (D-AZ) To Hold Hearings on Phrenology Deniers

“We cannot allow Big Psychiatry to undermine and question the Settled Science of Phrenology.”

To that end, Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), the top Democrat on the House Natural Resources Committee, sent letters to the University of Strasbourg, requesting information on professors who have testified before Congress on Phrenology Denial and, in those testimonies, questioned the extent to which congressmen  are contributing to physiological impairment. “Understanding Phrenology and its impacts on federal officials is an important part of the Committee’s oversight plan,” Grijalva wrote, adding that if the allegations against  Franz Joseph Gall are true, they “may not be isolated incidents.” Specifically, he asked that they reveal the professors’ sources of external funding, and provide him with all drafts of their testimony and related communications.

“I am hopeful that disclosure of a few key pieces of information on Cranioscopy will establish the impartiality of phrenology research and policy recommendations published in your institution’s name and greatly assist me and my colleagues in making more even shithouse-rat-crazy laws,” he wrote.
