Abstract:

Has our desire for certainty and objectivity closed off the "magical" influence of the natural world? In Mexico and Canada observe how the certainties of science can combine with natural conceptions of physical disease both in the tribal world of the shaman and in the thinking of modern medical science. Also travel to the Aboriginal culture of Australia to inquire whether there is an objective reality "out there" or whether we participate in its creation.
