No. Magical thinking and rational thinking are fundamentally different.
Those who believe in magic believe that everything in the world is connected with all unknown symbolic ties. Therefore, for example, you can influence the whole through a part (for example, make a plot if you have a hair or a person's name).
Philosophy is based on rational conceptual thinking. And even if it asserts something irrational (will, desire, spirit), it does so through logic and arguments. That is why philosophy appears at the moment of “conjuring the world”, when people are no longer satisfied with explanations from myths and mystical practices.
Magic and philosophy are two in one, they cannot exist separately. Magic is the perfection and perfection of all natural sciences, since all correct philosophy is divided into physics, mathematics, and theology. There are four elements which constitute the main foundations of all corporeal things: Fire, Water, Earth, and Air, from which all things were formed, not by gathering together, but by transmutation and union, and to which they return when they are decomposed. This is my opinion and I do not impose my vision of this issue on anyone!!! With respect.
Rather, it is metaphysics, and it is a voluntaristic one at that (transformation of oneself in the direction of power, omnipotence, and maximum understanding of the world). Magic itself presupposes the understanding of certain things that do not fit into rationalistic (classical) thinking, so to speak, a scientific picture of the world with a picture of cause-and-effect relationships and associations drawn by it.
There is the magic of love, there is the magic of music, there is the magic of nature… there is a magic of thinking and philosophy. But seriously, any literate philosophy is built in such a way that the terms of religion, esotericism, mysticism, and mythology used in the philosophical text have a quasi-meaning. Otherwise, they carry a different meaning. They are most often used as symbols and metaphors. For example, if a philosopher speaks of God, then god is a metaphor for something in man that does not depend on man. For example, conscience. Kant says this about conscience:”a supernatural inner influence.” Or, when it is said – “divine beauty” or that love unions arise in heaven, then in philosophy this means-not created by man, but present, available.
Worldview if you like, but not everyone can understand it, it is different for many, I don't believe in white and black magic, but only my own and it has many colors.
