    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This brief historical study of Thai mentalités and society draws on perspectives from anthropology and religious studies. Astrology, numerology, and other applied sciences of prognostication and protection shape everyday decision-making in Thailand for soldiers, police, criminals, business people and politicians. The applied sciences offer guidance on timing and how to proceed. Details from the life of Police Major General Khun Phantharakratchadet (1898-2006) will illustrate the main points.
