    Degeneration Under the Microscope at the Fin Se Siècle.Christopher Lawrence - 2009 - Annals of Science 66 (4):455-471.
    Theories of familial, racial, and national degeneration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have been explored by historians in the context of social and moral pathology. At the same time nerve degeneration was studied in the post mortem room and in the laboratory but links to the broader ideology of degeneration have not been investigated by scholars. This paper joins these domains by examining the concept of Wallerian degeneration. It argues that various discourses—including those of the laboratory scientist, (...)

    Robert M. Young's Mind, Brain and Adaptation Revisited.Christopher Lawrence - 2021 - British Journal for the History of Science 54 (1):61-77.
    Robert Maxwell Young's first book Mind, Brain and Adaptation in the Nineteenth Century, written from 1960 to 1965, still merits reading as a study of the naturalization of mind and its relation to social thought in Victorian Britain. I examine the book from two perspectives that give the volume its unique character: first, Young's interest in psychology, which he considered should be used to inform humane professional practices and be the basis of social reform; second, new approaches to the history (...)
