THE THEORY OF RENE GIRARD: A VERY SIMPLE INTRODUCTION by Carly Osborn.
If you’d like to understand the basics of the theory of René Girard without delving into a serious academic text, then this book was written for you.
It also has knights in armour, Batman, Greek tragedy, and hats.
NOTE ABOUT PURCHASING: You may currently purchase online HERE. However, I have received a number of emails about the shipping charges from this site being excessive. I am therefore moving to a new online bookseller, which should be transferred by mid-October. If you would like me to contact you when this has occurred, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you on a pending order list. Thankyou for your patience.
The AGS is proud to produce the Bloomsbury book series Violence, Desire and the Sacred, showcasing groundbreaking collections of essays that utilise mimetic theory for research in a broad range of disciplines.
From the Bloomsbury website:
“Violence, Desire, and the Sacred is a series dedicated to the global development of mimetic theory. It includes historical and theoretical studies aimed at reconstructing the human sciences—addressing new issues, seizing interdisciplinary opportunities, and tackling global problems. It also sets about demonstrating the practical relevance of mimetic theory. This series breaks new ground, especially as a vehicle for the emerging second generation of Girardian scholars.”
