ALAN DERSHOWITZ LETTERS TO A YOUNG LAWYER PDF

Head Masters challenges the assumption that phrenology—the study of the conformation of the skull as it relates to mental faculties and character—played only a minor and somewhat anecdotal role in the development of education. Stephen Tomlinson asserts instead that phrenology was a scientifically respectable theory of human nature, perhaps the first solid physiological psychology. He shows that the first phrenologists were among the most prominent scientists and intellectuals of their day, and that the concept was eagerly embraced by leading members of the New England medical community. Following its progression from European theorists Franz-Joseph Gall, Johan Gasper Spurzheim, and George Combe to Americans Horace Mann and Samuel Gridley Howe, Tomlinson traces the origins of phrenological theory and examines how its basic principles of human classification, inheritance, and development provided a foundation for the progressive practices advocated by middle-class reformers such as Combe and Mann. He also elucidates the ways in which class, race, and gender stereotypes permeated 19th century thought and how popular views of nature, mind, and society supported a secular curriculum favoring the use of disciplinary practices based on physiology.

Apr 27, Matthew rated it it was ok Recommended to Matthew by: My Father Shelves: law Alan Dershowitz has very strong opinions about things and he is not afraid to tell you what they are.

Defense attorneys should go right up to the line of what is ethical but prosecutors should not. Everyone deserves a vigorous defense no matter how big a scumbag they are, except for big corporations because defending them is like being a mouthpiece for the Mafia.

Personal injury lawyers are heroes because they stand up for the little guy, but anyone who makes his living defending the big guy from all the little guys deserves to be vilified. Bush vs. Gore was a travesty of justice arrived at by a corrupt supreme court that was in the pocket of the Bush family.

In this book, Dershowitz gives some good advice, like be ethical. Stand up for what you believe. This advice is all overshadowed, however, by his gargantuan ego. He spends a lot of time attacking critics that have personally attacked him, even though he claims not to care about public criticism. By so heatedly coming after people who have criticized him, especially regarding the O. Simpson trial, he comes across as very insecure about some of the decisions he has made.

He is politically very partisan and all his negative examples tend to be of lawyers and judges from the other side of the political spectrum. It would be as if a doctor wanted only perfect outcomes and never wanted to lose a patient. It would be pretty easy to become a podiatrist or a cosmetic surgeon.

Doctors who fix feet and straighten up noses rarely end up with fatalities. The same is true for lawyers. Those who take the most difficult cases lose most often. But they also can occasionally win extremely difficult cases.

Perhaps because we often work on an ethically ambiguous terrain, we need to create larger-than-life role models to look up to.
