René Noël Théophile Girard, né à Avignon le 25 décembre 1923, est un philosophe français, membre de l'Académie française depuis 2005. Ancien élève de l'École des chartes et professeur émérite de littérature comparée à l'université Stanford et à l'Université Duke aux États-Unis, il est l’inventeur de la théorie mimétique qui, à partir de la découverte du caractère mimétique du désir, a jeté les bases d’une nouvelle anthropologie. Il se définit lui-même comme un anthropologue de la violence et du religieux.

Kirja-arvosteluja

Probably the most difficult of Girard’s books. It’s taken me a year to finish it. And only through the encouragement of the faithful members of the Girard Reading Group operating out of ACU Melbourne. Girard is much clearer dealing with reinterpretation of past events than speculating about the future. If indeed the human race has one.
