From PathfinderWiki

The Pathfinder campaign setting is full of magic and its users, from cloistered wizards to nature-loving druids, deific clerics to patron-bound witches. Some of the greatest fallen civilizations used powerful magic, such as Thassilon and its Runelords, and the world is dotted with powerful magic items and the remnants of what the raw power of magic can leave behind when misused.

Magic is expressed in many different ways, from the types and schools of magic to magical traditions and ritual magic. Magic theory academically explores the nature of magic, and subjects in metaphysics touch on many underlying forces.
