Witchcraft As a Primitive Interpretation of Mental Disorder

  • M. J. Field (a1)

Extract

The following facts concerning West African witchcraft were observed and recorded by the present writer while working as an ethnologist in the Gold Coast. The writer had not, at that time, any psychiatric experience, but has since worked in British mental hospitals long enough for the facts to invest themselves with psychiatric significance.
