My current project "Making Biological Minds," re-examines the historical roots of the neurosciences in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain as the product of developments in philosophy, political economy, history, aesthetics, medicine, physiology and language studies, as well as changing understandings of scientific evidence and governance. By reflecting upon this history, I aims to show how present-day practitioners might benefit from a richer knowledge of that past.
