About this item

Scholars of theology, religion, and other humanities and social sciences explore the scope of French anthropological philosopher René Girard's (b. 1923) mimetic theory in view of a world that can no longer neglect either the public role or the plurality of religion. They cover mimetic theory and religion; mimetic theory, Christianity, and interfaith (inter-religious) dialogue; and rivalry, sacrifice, and world religions. Among their topics are neither Dawkins for Durkheim: on Girard's theory of religion, Girard and the feminist critique of religion: intimate mediation in Kristeva and Girard, sacrifice as a contested concept between R. Schwager and R. Girard and its significance for inter-religious dialogue, the roots of violence: society and the individual in Buddhism and Girard, and Judaism and the exodus from archaic religion: reading Girard among the world religions.
