Physiognomy allows us to read the mind, character and temperament according to the shape of a person's facial features, the expression of his face, as well as the shape, position and movements of his body.
It is a science that reduces to the method the means by which character can be determined, and teaches us to form sound judgments, eliminating all sentiment and fantasy in our assessments of people.
The sensation of attraction and repulsion is felt constantly, but often with ignorance of the cause and with a complete inability to support the instinct with a logical cause.
Learning certain rules will enable us to prove the correctness or incorrectness of our impulses and save us from many serious mistakes.
These rules are not based on vague theories, but are the result of the conclusions and accumulated experience of scientists for centuries.
At all times, philosophers have highly appreciated this science.
A thousand faces, one person. Leila Lomax has turned the notion of physiognomy on its head. She posits that all of us are composed of a thousand selves, each with its own unique face, which often change according to the circumstances in which they find themselves. And she reveals that these individualized selves are not only accessible to everyone but observable in everyday life with an amazing degree of precision.
Lomax’s book will appeal to readers who enjoy books by Erik Erikson, Julia Cameron, and Thomas Harris.
I'm delighted to read this
