Out of stock.

In the pages of Magic and Meaning, two respected philosophers of magic, Eugene Burger and Robert E. Neale examine the psychological, symbolic and spiritual roots of theatrical conjuring. They have two distinct voices, which occasionally disagree, but they approach their topic from similar directions, ultimately arriving at a harmonious worldview of magic as both entertainment and something much more. The result is a book brimmimg with new ideas that will set the reader's head spinning and reveal a way of thinking about performing magic that is at the same time ancient and revolutionary. This is not a book for the timid, the hidebound or the unimaginative. It is a book whose purpose is to open new vistas for the performance and presentation of real magic!
