Abstract:

"Covers myth, witchcraft, iconography, fiction, dreams, and seeks to find common ground in anthropology, psychology, and history. It calls upon the findings of world ethnography as well as on ideas and experiences familiar to any reflective individual. Rodney Needham demonstrates a method of cultural analysis made possible by the discrimination of primary human characteristics, and he investigates (through a study of the image of the witch) the imaginative tendency to synthesize primary factors into archetypes"--Publisher description.
