  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: Giuseppe Fornari once said to me, "a strong theory produces strong responses."Benoît Chantre's review in Volume 23 of the reception in French to René Girard's work credited Eric Gans with initiating an important bilingual dialog. So we begin Volume 24 there, with Trevor Cribben Merrill's translation of "Pour une esthétique triangulaire" from the issue of Critique featuring Girard. Thanks to Eric for letting us publish it and for giving us a short explanation of its place in his own work.I appreciate the continued support of the journal by the Department of English, The College of Arts and Letters, and Michigan State University, and the constant supply of submissions with such wide-ranging ...

  • Introduction to "Toward a Triangular Aesthetics"
    • Abstract: Rereading this piece written over forty years ago recalls for me the revelatory effect of La violence et le sacré when it appeared in 1972. From Mensonge romantique's theory of desire designed for the novel and its place in the moral history of the modern West—a point too often neglected by those who read it as an across-the-board description of human desire—René Girard waited a full eleven years before producing this seminal work, which proposed a radically new fundamental anthropology.My response to this revelation took well over a decade to achieve its mature expression, and even The Origin of Language in 1981, which contained the first version of the originary hypothesis of human/language origin, did not yet ...

  • Toward a Triangular Aesthetics
    • Abstract: In 1960, in "The Problem of Method," which serves as the introduction not only to Critique of Dialectical Reason but to all of his recent work, Sartre enrolls himself solemnly under the banner of Marxism, which he considers the unsurpassable philosophy of our era. Today, a dozen years later, the Sartrean position has become open to challenge, it is true, because its deconstruction is underway, but it has not yet been dismissed as absurd. Existentialism, by immolating itself on the altar of praxis, has taken with it phenomenology and the Existenzphilosophie that emerged from it. Heidegger, for example, can be read as the last defender of the bourgeois order fetishized as Being, forced by the triumphal march of the ... Read More

  • Çatalhöyük, Archaeology, Violence
    • Abstract: In 2011, Steven Pinker published The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined,1 arguing we are the beneficiaries of the "long peace." The problem with invoking long periods of peace is that they are often fleetingly ephemeral and can rapidly turn to hostility. The very year the book was published marked the beginning of the Arab Uprisings, unforeseen and unplanned for, apparently without historical precedent or analogy. The spiraling violence and polarization, as well as the accompanying refugee crisis that has followed, have demonstrated this was a questionable, if not illusory designation. This sustained violence has profound effects on social consciousness across the political spectrum, ushering in ... Read More

  • Mimetic Euphemism and Mythology: Group Therapy, Scapegoating, and the
           Displacement of Disquiet
    • Abstract: Mimetic theory draws support from diverse disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. But arguably Girard would have even more influence if his theory had stronger life data, and one field well positioned to provide such input is psychology. Girard distinguished his thinking from Freud, while critiquing the psychoanalytic tradition more generally, in Book III of Things Hidden since the Foundation of the World1—a work taking the form of an extended dialogue with two psychiatrists. One of these, Jean-Michel Oughourlian, has begun to develop the Girard-inspired practice of "interdividual psychology."2 In Girard's own hands, albeit to a limited degree, mimetic theory has been applied to mental health issues.3 ...

  • Mimesis, Ritual Sacrifice, and Ceremony of Proskynesis
    • Abstract: The aim of this work is to analyze a political concept derived from a religious myth. I will analyze both by means of the genealogical method of the mimetic violence because this genealogical method looks for the origin of concepts and myths within the human culture. Its basic assumption goes like this: the mimetic sacrifice causes the ritual sacrifice, and the ritual sacrifice causes in its turn the myth and the prohibitions. The political concept, derived from the mimetic violence, is the notion of concord or unanimity (homonoia).One critic says of René Girard: "Girard is one of the last hedgehog types who survive, according to Isaiah Berlin's typology subtly deduced of Archilochus's dictum: the fox knows many ...

  • Contemplative Practice and the Therapy of Mimetic Desire
    • Abstract: I would like to begin this essay by sharing an intuition. It is an intuition requiring much fuller development, but I see myself making a modest contribution to it here—and that is the prospect of integrating mimetic theory with Christian contemplative practice. Such integration would, I imagine, be the beginning of something very ancient and very new.I am aware of some promising developments in this direction,1 but my conviction is that its potential is barely tapped. It would probably be too much to suggest that such integration could result in a distinctive "school" of spirituality, though that is not inconceivable. Perhaps a better analogy for what I envision can be found in the emerging field of Contemplative ... Read More

  • War and Politics: Clausewitz and Schmitt in the Light of Girard's Mimetic
           Theory
    • Abstract: My thoughts on the relationship between war and politics will follow three distinct steps. First off, in an exposition of the Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz and German political philosopher Carl Schmitt, I will attempt to illustrate that politics, as such, is rooted in war and that the latter can never be understood as a mere instrument of the former. A second step will highlight, using above all Schmitt, traditional manifestations of the religious containment of war, with particular emphasis on the interconnectedness of duels and divine judgment. And finally, this essay will delve into Schmitt's desperate wrangling with how biblical revelation effectuated a dissolution of conventional law, and how ... Read More

  • After Sacrifice Ontology: The Shared Revelatory Dynamic of Heidegger and
           Girard
    • Abstract: In a relatively little-known interview, conducted by Thomas Bertonneau, Girard remarks that with Heidegger there is an aspect he "would almost call a worship of the old sacred," something that struck him as "pretty scary … sinister." But, almost in the same breath, Girard continues, "And yet there can be no doubt that Heidegger is a genius."1This doubled attitude to Heidegger, where on the one side the German philosopher is basically a hostile relic of the archaic sacred, and on the other he has contributed something of genius to contemporary thought, has not been sufficiently examined among Girardians. The default position seems to be a dismissal on account of the former and an unwillingness to engage in respect ... Read More

  • Rescuing Rhetoric: Kenneth Burke, René Girard, and Forms of
           Conversion
    • Abstract: Language is the surest indicator of the being with.In Things Hidden since the Foundation of the World, René Girard insists that contemporary theories of language cannot fully account for mimetic desire, which is rooted far deeper in human anthropology. Girard writes, "the mimetic process, without being foreign to language, is prior to language and goes beyond it in every respect."1 While Bateson's "double bind" might be repur-posed to explain the mimetic problem, the problem itself unfolds independent of any system of communication. This is a striking claim, particularly from a scholar who stumbled upon his key insight through the study of a specific literary genre. Nevertheless, Girard insists that while language ... Read More

  • Girard and the "Sacrifice of the Mass": Mimetic Theory and Eucharistic
           Theology
    • Abstract: It is obvious that bringing to light the founding murder completely rules out any compromise with the principle of sacrifice, or indeed with any conception of the death of Jesus as sacrifice.If anyone says that a true and proper sacrifice is not offered to God in the Mass … let him be anathema.René Girard's thought has produced both admiration and unease among Catholic sacramental theologians struggling to come to grips with what his theory of scapegoating and sacrifice implies for "the holy sacrifice of the Mass." The language of sacrifice permeates the liturgy itself, official Church teaching—including the documents of Vatican II—and centuries of Eucharistic theology, so Girard's critique has the potential to ...

  • Human Evolution and the Single Victim Mechanism: Locating Girard's
           Hominization Hypothesis through Literature Survey
    • Abstract: René Girard's interdisciplinary theory of human culture, its origins, and its evolution, constitutes one of the more ambitious theories available in scholarship, with manifold applications in the humanities, interdisciplinarians, the human sciences, and peace studies scholars.1 I will not rehearse that theory here (a thorough introduction ought to be sought elsewhere, as in Evolution and Conversion) but briefly recall that he has argued: (A) that pre-cognitive imitation (mimesis) is a key factor driving human behavior and gives rise to numerous benefits and problems, and (B) that early human mimetic capacity coevolved with and through "the victimage mechanism"—i.e., group murder of a victim, which gave birth to the ...

  • Acquisitive Imitation and the Gift-Economy: Escaping Reciprocity in J. R.

    • Abstract: Thirteen dwarves and a wizard invade the quiet abode of Bilbo Baggins in an effort to recruit him for an expedition, the purported purpose of which is to recover stolen treasure and exact vengeance on Smaug the dragon, the robber who had cruelly killed a large portion of Thorin's family and friends. Although most readers and critics approach J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit as a children's story, an unserious dress-rehearsal-sketch of The Lord of the Rings at best, and in spite of the fact that, as Nicholas Boyle notes, "there is something embarrassing" about discussing Tolkien's work in an academic context, for "it is so obviously not real literature," The Hobbit, with its "Secondary World" of fantastical creatures ...
