Magic and the Extended Person More fundamentally the very existence of contagious magic implies an extended notion of ‘personhood’. 23 I use the term also to mean that a person’s possessions or body parts can be distributed throughout his environment, and that in some sense these accoutrements and parts can be thought of as replicating him. Magic capitalizes upon the belief that acting on the distributed parts will still affect the whole (pars pro toto). The sympathetic relation guarantees that the part of the person being acted upon magically stands for the whole person and that this connection holds true at a distance in time and space.
Nevertheless, the attacks made in this treatise were considerably less influential in their own day compared to the use to which they were put almost two millennia later. The fundamental arguments made in On the Sacred Disease against the false claims of magical practitioners, as far as we can tell, had no discernible impact on the behavior of its Greek contemporaries. This is a significant point to bear in mind as we proceed through the author’s arguments, because they speak strongly against his influence in his own day and against the sometimes exaggerated importance ascribed to his views by scholars.
In the case of Hermes giving the drug mDly to Odysseus, our text makes clear that this herb is called mDly by the gods and it is hard for mortals to dig up. Hermes must point it out to Odysseus, explain to him how to take it properly, and even further how he should approach Circe once he has taken it. From a Greek mythological point of view, this kind of divine insight into the mortal world is standard fare. We are told in numerous places that the gods even have a separate language to describe things in the natural world that are not fully understood by mortals.
