  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: The affection would be impossible for me to talk about, but our direction is clear. What René Girard asked for—from friends, opponents, simply readers—was to test his hypothesis in all the fields, especially the ones into which he had made headway. Whether he is right, or whether the human data require some new reflection (such data as what Stephen Dedalus called painfully amor matris, subjective and objective genitive), we ought to work even harder now that he is gone.The question of a special issue came up. I take solace and counsel from what Benoît Chantre told the Parisian journalists who asked him to identify Girard’s inner circle. René and Martha Girard worked as hard as any two could to keep just one circle ... Read More

  • Belonging
    • Abstract: “Belonging” means the fact of belonging to something or someone. A serf belongs to an estate. A slave belongs to his master. In our democratic universe, no one belongs to a lord and master anymore, at least in principle. Nowadays, people only belong to communities of free individuals who are equal under the law—again, in principle.We all belong to the human race. Nearly all of you here belong to the nation of Italy, to Sicily, to the city of Messina, to such and such a milieu, to such and such a family. Most of you now even have a new level of supranational belonging: your passports are no longer merely Italian but European.While some relationships of belonging are mainly spatial in nature, they necessarily have a ...

  • René Girard in France
    • Abstract: The reception of René Girard’s work in France deserves book-length treatment to fully describe the heated debates, conflicting expectations, and controversy that it inspired before its lasting importance was eventually recognized. We must keep in mind that, although he lived in the US and became a citizen in 1956, he always kept his sights on his native land. He watched the transformations of French thought from the other side of the ocean; he forged his own writing strategies in response to French thought; and it was within the context of French debates that he chose to formulate, through the conjoined hypotheses concerning mimetic desire, the scapegoat, and Judeo-Christian writing, the founding event of his ...

  • Girard Reclaimed: Finding Common Ground between Sarah Coakley and
           René Girard on Sacrifice
    • Abstract: The reception of the thought of René Girard in theological discourse has been anything but uniform. Some have praised his theory for its simplicity and the scope of its explanatory power, while others have critiqued its apparent negative anthropology and claim to universality. Girard is known for articulating what he has termed “mimetic theory” and, more controversially, for arguing that the mimetic desire particular to human beings leads to violence, which can only be attenuated by a sacrificial system that has arisen alongside human culture. Girard has faced numerous critiques against his theory in general, and has received backlash for his suspicion of and subsequent distancing from, the language of sacrifice. ... Read More

  • Desire in Madame Bovary
    • Abstract: In Mensonge romantique et vérité romanesque (Deceit, Desire, and the Novel), René Girard attempts to explain how desire has been depicted in different European novels. According to Girard, the lesser novelists have retracted to some kind of romantic worldview in their description of human relationships. While the “romantic writer” does not see that desires are mediated by other people’s desires, and instead describes desire as object-related, linear, and devoid of any ongoing mimetic contagion, a number of novelists, are, nonetheless, able to reveal the illusion of romantic desire. In Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, the author tries to peer into the desires that govern Emma Bovary's relentless search for a romantic life. ... Read More

  • Derrida, Girard, and the Involvement of Personal Life in Theory
    • Abstract: There are many touch points between the work of Jacques Derrida and René Girard. To me, as a student of literature, these two writers particularly stand out as great readers or great exegetes.1 The way they handle and combine texts, the way they dare to break with reading conventions, has proved to be really fruitful.Some time ago I watched a documentary about Derrida, made by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering Kofman, published in 2002, carrying the simple title Derrida.2 I found that this experimental documentary at the same time reflected Derrida’s many reservations, not to say his skepticism, as to the possibility of making portraits—and—proved to be far more revealing, even intimate, than a conventional documentary ...

  • Between Transcendence and Violence: Gianni Vattimo and René Girard on
           Violence in a Secular Age
    • Abstract: Violence is one of the crucial issues that always dominates modern theological discourses. However, the discussion is not limited to theological discourses because violence is one of the most prominent problems for human beings today, religious and irreligious alike. Violence manifests itself in various forms, including the use of religious outlook for support. Perhaps this means that violence is pervasive in the nature of human being since it always occurs again and again in human history without any possibility to fully eradicate it. Perhaps the best way that humans can do is to minimalize or restrain it.Among contemporary thinkers who have written on the problem of violence, René Girard’s understanding of ... Read More

  • Lolita and Mimetic Desire
    • Abstract: From the mediator, a veritable artificial sun, descends a mysterious ray which makes the object shine with a false brilliance. There would be no illusion if Don Quixote were not imitating Amadis. Emma Bovary would not have taken Rudolph for a Prince Charming had she not been imitating romantic heroines.And Humbert Humbert would not have chosen Lolita for a lover had he not been imitating romantic heroes. Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita, probably due to its controversial subject, is regularly analyzed as a piece of “technical virtuosity and hilarity.”2 In this essay, I will attempt to show how the novel unfolds with René Girard’s theory of mimetic desire. This approach will highlight how the plot, style, and hero of ... Read More

  • Ivan Illich and René Girard: The Dream of Modernity Ends
    • Abstract: In the year 2002, I came across a manuscript by Jean-Pierre Dupuy that linked the work of Ivan Illich with that of René Girard. I immediately set about translating the text, which was published in Spanish as part of the essay collection The Other Titan: Ivan Illich.1 The original “Detour and Sacrifice” can be found in two books that pay tribute to the authors. The first was compiled by Lee Hoinacki and Carl Mitcham, Illich’s disciples;2 the second is a book edited by Sandor Goodhart, Jorgen Jorgensen, Tom Ryba, and James G. Williams that celebrates Girard’s work.3The genesis of Dupuy’s text actually goes back to 1996 and was inspired by Ivan Illich’s seventieth birthday, which was celebrated with a series of ...

  • The Contagion Principle versus Rights: The Mob Justice Phenomenon as
           Anthropo-Poietic Struggle
    • Abstract: On a dreary spring morning in late October 2006, two policemen drove their cruiser up Nkonjane Road in the K Section of KwaMashu, a former “Africans only” township about fifteen kilometers (9.3 miles) northwest of Durban. As the cruiser passed over K Section’s softly sloping hills, two men sat handcuffed together in the back. The officers parked the car in front of a house where a woman had reported being raped a few days prior. Leaving the two suspects in the car, the officers alighted and walked up to the home. After greeting the victim, they asked her to step outside to identify the men. The victim, upon seeing the two men seated in the squad car, loudly screamed that they were the rapists . . . The crowd ... Read More
