      Course Description
    Understanding the nature of magic and the anthropology of sorcery and witchcraft beliefs around the world and throughout history offers insights into some fundamental aspects of human belief and behavior. The course will show that the ways of thinking which comprise what anthropology calls magic and the complex attributes of the imaginary evil witch, are not only absolutely universal, they are rooted in our evolutionary biology and hence are basic to the human condition.
