As a study of magic in 'primitive' societies and its survival today in our thoughts and social actions, it represents what Claude Levi-Strauss called, in an introduction to that edition, the astonishing modernity of the mind of one of the century's greatest thinkers. The book offers a fascinating snapshot of magic throughout various cultures as well as deep sociological and religious insights still very much relevant today.
At a period when art, magic and science appear to be crossing paths once again, "A General Theory of Magic" presents itself as a classic for our times. Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Be the first to write a review. Add to Wishlist.

Throughout, the semantic function of the sentences concerned is given in terms of the states of affairs asserted to obtain in simple assertoric contexts. Philosophers wishing to develop an expressivistic alternative to moral realism have expended a great deal of energy and ingenuity in devising responses to this challenge.
For an overview, see Schroeder and Miller a , Chs 4 and 5. For very useful surveys of recent work on expressivism, see Schroeder and Sinclair Challenges to the existence dimension of realism have been outlined in previous sections. In this section some forms of non-realism that are neither error-theoretic nor expressivist will be briefly introduced.
The forms of non-realism view the sentences of the relevant area as against the expressivist truth-apt, and against the error-theorist at least sometimes true. The existence dimension of realism is thus left intact.
