dc.description.abstract In this book I offer a causal explanation for occult beliefs. I try to show what events in a person's live typically precede the occult moment and why the occult moment is so important to that person's sense of herself or himself. I do not attempt to judge the truth of occult beliefs: I try to show when they arise and what work they perform.
