Abstract

With his later, famous, doctrine of a strict routine of child-rearing – ignoring babies’ cries, regular feeding times, and not picking them up – one knows full well how Truby King would have responded to the cries of these babies depicted in Charles Darwin’s The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Any deviation from the routine was condemned as ‘spoiling’ the child; the likely consequences producing, in King’s terms, ‘a veritable tyrant’. Darwin undertook medical studies at the University of Edinburgh, but left after two years without graduating.
