The article deals with labyrinths and mazes. According to maze scholar Craig Wright there is no difference between a maze and a labyrinth. Mazes in which a choice is possible are called multicursal mazes. Those with only a single path, no matter how convoluted, are unicursal. Since focused walking is believed to reduce anxiety and diminish negative thinking, labyrinths have become very popular tourist sites.
