ANTH 215 - Magic and Religion


“Magic” (the application of spiritual beliefs to problem solving) and “religion” (institutionalization of belief and rituals) are linked conceptual centerpieces in this course about the roles transcendent phenomena play in everyday, extraordinary, and often conflict-ridden human existence carried out in multiple realities. We concentrate on anthropological approaches to belief, symbolism, and ritual, which emphasize firsthand knowledge and cross-cultural comparisons.
