It's perhaps no accident that in Jamaican patois, "science" refers to obeah, the island's African grab-bag of herbal medicine, internal linksorcery, and occult lore. In his book on the trickster in West Africa, a study in "mythic irony and sacred delight," Robert Pelton also points out the similarities between modern scientists and traditional trickster figures like Anansi, Eshu, and Ellegua: "Both seek to befriend the strange, not so much striving to 'reduce' internal linkanomaly as to use it as a passage into a larger order." We could ask for no better description of the technological tricks pulled by the great internal linkdubmasters.

In the study of mythology and religion, a trickster is a god, goddess, spirit or human who internal linkbreaks the rules of the internal linkgods or nature, sometimes maliciously (for example, Loki) but usually with ultimately positive effects. Often, the rule-breaking takes the form of tricks (eg. internal linkEris) or thievery. Tricksters can be cunning or foolish or both; they are often internal linkvery funny even when they are considered sacred and are performing important cultural tasks. Animals associated with tricksters include coyotes and ravens.

In many cultures, particularly American Indian, the trickster and the culture hero are combined. To illustrate, internal linkPrometheus, in Greek mythology, stole fire from the gods to give it to humans. He is more of a culture hero than a trickster. In many North American Indian mythologies, the coyote spirit stole fire from the gods (or stars or internal linksun) and is more of a trickster than a culture hero. This is primarily because of other stories involving the coyote spirit; Prometheus was an intellectual Titan, whereas coyote is usually seen as a jokester and prankster.
