Humans believe in witchcraft since prehistory well that interpretations of this phenomenon vary according to the culture and times. In Western society, witchcraft is associated with the belief in the devil or demons because the practice is associated with spells that seek to cause and hurt.
Beyond this tendency, in some cases, we often talk about two types of witchcraft: beneficial witchcraft and the evil, as in the case of white magic and black magic.
Ultimately, witchcraft practices are similar to the actions performed by magicians, sorcerers and shamans since they all involve a kind of logic that is beyond what is considered normal or natural.
In today's world, witchcraft as a practice able to influence the reality is so-called marginal. On the other hand, these phenomena appear frequently in popular culture through television, cartoons, books or films, often in a comical and humorous register.
