Jacobi retired from the Army and studied at the University of Heidelberg.

In 1880 Jacobi writes an important article "Morality in Psychiatric Statistics" (Нравственность в психиатрической статистике).

Jacobi is credited to be the first who formulated the all the principles for the new paradigm in the organizational psychiatry towards Pinel ideas of non-confinement. It was done during a historical debate of 1891 about the future of Russian psychiatry and required expertise in both European new theories and psychiatric practice in contemporary Russia.
