Over the past hundred years the study of religion and magic has changed dramatically, expanding outside the traditional confines of theology and philosophy to become part of modern disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, and psychology. Religion and Magic provides a concise survey of some of the most important developments in the study of the sacred during this period of change.
The book summarizes the approaches taken to religion and magic by the most significant scholars over the course of the preceding and present centuries. Covering over forty individuals from a wide range of disciplines, it includes Hegel, Marx, Weber, Frazer, Freud, Malinowski, Jung, Durkheim, Radcliffe-Brown, Evans-Pritchard, Geertz, Skorupski, Lévi-Strauss, Lawson, McCauley, Kristeva, and Mary Daly.
The volume is the perfect reference tool for students, introducing them to the main theories and debates in a readable and informative manner.
