About this product
- DescriptionAll forms of magic are linked to language. As a magic practitioner and a linguist, Patrick Dunn illuminates this fascinating relationship and offers breakthrough theories on how and why magic works. Drawing on linguistics and semiotics (the study of symbols), Dunn illuminates the magical use of language, both theoretically and practically. Analyzing the structure of ritual, written signs and sigils, primal language, incantations across cultures, Qabalah and gematria (Hebrew numerology), and the Echian vocabulary, he poses new theories on the mechanics of magic.This revolutionary paradigm can help magicians understand how sigils and talismans work, compose Echian spells, speak in tongues for magic, create mantras, work with gematria, use post-modern defixios, and refine their practice in countless other ways. Magic, Power, Language, Symbol is a unique tour de force that reinterprets the very nature of magic - placing it within the modern sciences of symbolism (semiotics) and language (linguistics). Within this paradigm, Dunn explains something that most other books miss: a logical and scientific understanding of how and why real magic actually works. - Donald Michael Kraig, author of Modern Magick .
