Kowalski, M. Foucault, M. Mauss, I explain how our knowledge and the magical culture determine the way of thinking. I ask to what extend folk communities described in Konopielka are determined by the magical way of seeing the world. In my opinion, there is a strong magical echo in the folk society which makes it problematic to understand different interpretations of the ‘conflict about a scythe’ in Polish ethnological descriptions."]
