This comparative study of African religion and psychology deals with the idea of the soul and the spiritual powers of man and animals in West African belief. Based on personal research supported by anthropological study, it covers most of the coast and hinterland from the Ivory Coast to Eastern Nigeria. It records beliefs in a future life; reincarnation; metamorphosis; ghosts; hysterical possession; soul-eating by witches; and the interpretation of dreams.
