Intimate Domain: Desire, Trauma, and Mimetic Theory
Paper, 96 pages. Economy and the Future: A Crisis of Faith. The trouble is well worth it. The Mark of the Sacred. Stanford University Press, How is it that, although we all know that market is just the result of the interaction of millions of individual acts, it appears to all of them as a foreign autonomous power? Through a close reading of Christian theology, Hegel, Heidegger, and Rene Girard, Dupuy provides a unique answer which shatters all our common wisdoms.
The Mark of the Sacred is one of those rare books that cannot simply be measured by academic standards because they themselves set new standards—a book which, in an enlightened well-organized state, should be printed and freely distributed in all schools! Farneti, Roberto. This compelling reflection on taken-for-granted assumptions in political theory delivers an urgently needed anthropological grounding for a theory of politics in a global age.

University Press of Florida, Lawtoo, Nidesh. New Fascism: Contagion, Community, Myth. His diagnosis — whose key figures include mimesis, myth, Girard, contagion, Bataille, Connolly, community, phantom egos, Dionysian identification, partage, Apollonian dream-states, and sacrifice — is both lucid and fascinating.
The book is a testament to the power of reasoning to unmask and resist cruel forms of affective contagion, even as it opens the door to the project of composing generous and laudable admixtures of pathos and logos. A bracing and elegant book very much worth reading. The Phantom of the Ego is the first comparative study that shows how the modernist account of the unconscious anticipates contemporary discoveries about the importance of mimesis in the formation of subjectivity.

Perhaps there is none of his higher functions in which his mimetic faculty does not play a decisive role. From time to time, I mull over mimesis and its role in human learning. What I notice among my students, however, is the human ability to perceive differences. I introduce poetry to my students as an ancient art derived from exactly what, no one is certain, but likely from invocation or ritual or song or the human desire for narrative —and I tell them that it has been carried along through history by, among other compelling things, mimesis—that mimetic faculty we possess that makes us want to repeat or copy, in order to learn, to love, to pass along, to entertain, to communicate, to enjoy.
The mimetic urge has a long history among those people who intellectualize. Theories of Media Univ.
By the way, the Theories of Media glossary project is a great resource! The term has found considerable employment in the writings of Rene Girard , whose writings span cultural anthropology, literary criticism, psychology, theology, and philosophy. Inasmuch as human beings constantly seek to imitate others, and most desires are in fact borrowed from other people, Girard believes that it is crucial to study how personality relates to others. Clearly, human psychology and biology cannot be simplified to mere reflection and copying, but it is equally clear that the metaphor of mirroring can be fruitful as we explore the complexities of mind and consciousness, culture and art.
Mimesis implies something active, a borrowing, a taking—a kind of theft, on the one hand, and a kind of tribute or ritual motion on the other.
