But the idea of the soul is less prominent, and this study is the first comparative account of West African psychological beliefs. This study essays to present one. Based on personal research supported by study of the best modern anthropologist, this examination of West African thought about the soul, and spiritual powers of man and animals, covers most of the coast and hinterland from the Ivory Coast to Eastern Nigeria. Beliefs in a future life; ghosts; reincarnation; metamorphosis; hysterical possession; soul-eating by witches; and the interpretation of dram are all recorded. In conclusion, Dr. Parrinder suggests briefly ways in which African religion and thought might be guided in their development. The subject is one of practical importance to all who are interested, personally and professionally, in religion, as well as to any others whose work leads them into personal relationships with West African people.
