Particularly important is Stuart Vyse, Believing in Magic. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1997. 67 Magical imagination and even magical thinking are alive and well. On the other hand, no matter how popular or apparently pervasive become the worlds of Harry Potter, Frodo, or Ged, it remains deeply controversial to believe in dragons, cloaks of invisibility, or raising people from the dead. Indeed, our ability to differentiate between the real role of magical imagination and the alleged reality of magical beliefs is an important cultural marker in Western modernity.
