Occultism, Witchcraft, Magic
Record Type: Review   ID: 1206


Hoyt, Charles Alva

 The purpose of this book is to aid students to find the way to asking the right questions about witchcraft. The author notes that the problem is not in finding answers but in judging between them. He distinguishes seven schools of witchcraft belief, each with its own set of answers. Their arguments are all summarized with the author's comments and references to pertinent studies, and the reader is directed to the sources of the arguments and the data upon which they are founded, so that after further reading he or she will be able to judge. Among others, there are chapters on Satanism, the anthropological approach to witchcraft, the psychological school, witchcraft and drugs, witchcraft in Salem, and witchcraft today. The relevance of parapsychology to understanding the nature of witchcraft is touched upon briefly.
