The Handbook of Contemporary Animism

Animism is an important part of many religions – from Shinto, Hinduism and Buddhism to Paganism and a range of indigenous religions – which connects the spiritual and material and holds that humans might not be unique in possessing souls or in being intentional agents.

This handbook brings together an international team of scholars to examine the full range of animist worldviews and practices.
