Important work of the Navarre-born physician and philosopher Juan De
Huarte ( 1530-1600 ), translated into Italian (from Spanish)
by M. Camillo Camilli.
It discusses the natural skills and inclinations of the various human minds.
" The author elegantly examined the physiognomy theories of his time, and described the most intimate
relationships that, in his opinion, existed between physiognomy, physiology and psychology.
Huarte argued, for example, that all those who had military intelligence, manifested it through
having a bald head"
