From healing and sunstones to firewalkers and prophets, across cultures and time periods, humans are linked by a belief in magic and the supernatural. In Science of the Magical, noted science journalist Matt Kaplan explores the links between science and magic and points out that stories of magic are often more than mere fantasy. Opening with the biblical story of the parting of the Red Sea and the origin story of an X-Men character, Kaplan opens the door to a world where our collective myths and stories often reflect and explain very real cultural, societal, and social phenomena.(This book may contain a small, black sharpie mark on the bottom edge, so that it can't be returned to a different wholesaler.)
