The article retraces the lost meaning of the term "turnipology" in early nineteenth-century Scotland, describes the principles and practices of the discipline of phrenology and explains the gap that grew between author Walter Scott's and the modern world's understanding of the word "turnipology" and context. The first couple of years of the nineteenth century have been regarded in Scottish historiography as the democratic development of the ideals of knowledge of the Enlightenment's literati. The period was also marked by a mutation in approaches to knowledge, mostly within a trend of philosophical writings from the second decade of the nineteenth century onwards.
