My research deals with the possibilities of interpretation of the criminal behavior opened up by the constitutional medicine and endocrinology during the inter-war era. Starting from two criminological studies of constitutional orientation issued in interwar Romania, I explore the semantic operations involved by the construction of the individual as a ‘psychosomatic unity’, as well as the larger social and political consequences of this process.
