Magic, Science, and Religion, and Other Essays
This book presents essays by renowned anthropologist Malinowski, known for his talent to bring together the warm reality of human living with the cool abstractions of science. His pages have become an almost indispensable link between the knowing of exotic and remote people with theoretical knowledge about humankind. This collection offers readers a set of concepts about religion, magic, science, rite and myth in the course of forming vivid impressions and understandings of the Trobrianders of New Guinea.
