This book explores the topic of cord and knot magic, focusing on. Magic is the practice of beliefs, rituals and/or actions which are said to control and manipulate, either natural or supernatural, beings and forces. Typically, magic is categorised as independent from both religion and science, due to its various beliefs and practices.

Individuals who engage in magical practices are referred to as either magicians or witches. In sociology, anomie (/ ˈ æ n ə ˌ m i /) is a societal condition defined by an uprooting or breakdown of any moral values, standards, or guidance for individuals to follow.

Anomie may evolve from conflict of belief systems and causes breakdown of social bonds between an individual and the community (both economic and primary socialization). E.g.

The sources of magic are to be found in passion and ignorance - which make up the greater part of man.

Durkheim’s work provided the intellectual foundation for Merton’s attempt to develop a macro-level explanation of rates of norm-violating behavior in American society.

Durkheim called the communal beliefs, morals, and attitudes of a society the collective conscience.
