The anti-witch. Ioan M. Lewis suggests that anthropology is like a ritual, in which doing fieldwork results in a state of possession by something foreign and writing about it after returning home is a process of depossession. This book by Jeanne Favret-Saada shows a direct correlation between the strength of the possession and the length of the process of depossession.

Favret-Saada has been praised for her radical realization of the anthropological ideal to get involved in the field with the entire person, and to put aside the question of ontological truth in order to reveal the inner logic and functionality of local practices as well as how people get involved in these practices.

Deadly Words: Witchcraft in the Bocage by Jeanne Favret-Saada (Paperback, 1980)

She shows that witchcraft is something to be found not only in former times or alien lands, but also next door and these days. The advantage and necessity of fieldwork becomes especially salient in a field where everybody is cautious about speech acts, not only because words can cause harm and death, and witches can hear them over distances, but also because admitting to be involved in witchcraft exposes oneself to public ridicule.
