Who is Alexandre Lacassagne?

Hey psst… friends!

Did anyone tell you who Dr. Alexandre Lacassagne really was?

Alexandre, a doctor emeritus, is an actor of his time: studious, serious, creator of criminal anthropology. He is a man attentive to the small details of life, a farce of illusions that could approve of his theories. He shared his knowledge with his students and became a professor at the Faculty of Medicine in Lyon.

This great “reader”, as he liked to call himself, gave without limits. For him, revisiting the works of his youth meant rereading them with the benefit of the experience he had gained.

And when he offered them to his disciples, he liked to say:

“To finally hand them over, is it not to continue to live in the minds of others?

When night falls and he returns home, he forgets about everything. The good Master is alone. The peaceful calm reminds him of the good old days. As she sits in his loving grandmother’s armchair with a cup of homemade iced tea, he smiles. Two men frozen in the photograph look at him from the fireplace. Probably a reminder of the good old days. But the smile is real.

At that moment, there is a knock at the door. “Who could visit me so late? He opens the door. Who was this mysterious visitor? He smiled again.

It was his old friend. His favourite colleague. And this mystery man was Professor Weil.
