O cérebro progressivo de Domingos Guedes Cabral: usos do Darwinismo no Brasil em fins do século XIX (2014)


In recent years there has been a revival of academic interest about the character of Dominic Guedes Cabral (1852-1883) and his doctoral thesis in 1876 transformed into a book, Functions of the brain , work considered materialist, positivist, and especially evolutionary. According Therezinha Collichio, underlying functions of the brain was next to the doctoral thesis of the Sylvio Romero, the most important text on the evolution of the generation of 1870 in Brazil. The objective of this work is to present how, in the book in question, Cabral articulates a concept of physiological brain to Darwinian notion of common origin to argue that the degenerate brain of the insane and criminals can, over time, be regenerated. On this journey, Cabral denies that there is any discovered in brain function that identifies with what generations understood and understand how soul. Therefore not fit to Law and Jurisprudence arbitrate on the criminal behavior of inmates or alienated, but to Medicine.
