bumps


bumps
В начале XIX в. Франц Йозеф Галль (1758—1828) начал читать лекции в Вене о своей теории, которую он называл cranioscopy (краниоскопия) и которую его ученики стали называть phrenology (френология). Галль и его последователи заявляли, что они могут описать характер человека, определить его таланты или криминальные наклонности, ощупывая кончиками пальцев кости головы и «считывая» информацию с выпуклостей (bumps) и углублений на его черепе. Выражение you need to have your bumps felt (тебе нужно прощупать твои шишки) означает «тебе нужно обратиться к психиатру, пройти психиатрическое обследование».
