Distinction between their witchcraft and their sorcery.
Essay # The British anthropologist Evans-Pritchard studied a Sudanese animist tribe called the Azande in the 1920s. He made a distinction between their witchcraft and their sorcery. His work is described in his assigned article (Evans-Pritchard 1931) and the Nanda/Warms text book (pp. 278-279). Explain the difference he suggests between witchcraft and sorcery, giving specific examples of each from his fieldwork. Finally, what social role do you think witchcraft serves that can explain why is has been so widespread in history and even today? For this last part of the question, think like an anthropologist who is trying to understand why people do this and not whether witchcraft is true or not. The Nanda/Warms chapter will help you with this.
