About eBook

eBook Description

girard's fascinating concept of mimetic violence of individual or collective behavior, stems from his critique on nietizche's anti-christian and pro-dionysian (pagan ritual) concept and freud's oedipal complex theory, and through these critiques he shapes a new foundation for mimetic desire before the birth of Christ, which is visible in Hebrew Scripture (beginning with cain). he exemplifies how Christ was the ending of such violence because he chose to not take part in it, but absorb all violence of the world, as the ultimate innocent victim. this theory of Christ as a victim, as other lesser examples, lends to girard's big campaign of the scapegoat mechanism, or how the victim of a society, through it's sacrificial allowance, gives order back to the culture of a society, thus silencing the disturbance of the crowd. not entirely conclusive, especially as a reader, but it does have seriously powerful claims for christian ideology and linguistic/cultural study, in general. it's definitely worth a read, if you're interested in critical research of scripture, especially the Gospels, or of mythological and historical conditions of collective behavior.
