René Girard's mimetic theory by Wolfgang Palaver( )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A systematic introduction into the mimetic theory of the French-American literary theorist and philosophical anthropologist Ren Girard, this essential text explains its three main pillars (mimetic desire, the scapegoat mechanism, and the Biblical difference) with the help of examples from literature and philosophy. This book also offers an overview of Ren Girard's life and work, showing how much mimetic theory results from existential and spiritual insights into one's own mimetic entanglements. Furthermore it examines the broader implications of Girard's theories, from the mimetic aspect of sovereignty and wars to the relationship between the scapegoat mechanism and the question of capital punishment. Mimetic theory is placed within the context of current cultural and political debates like the relationship between religion and modernity, terrorism, the death penalty, and gender issues. Drawing textual examples from European literature (Cervantes, Shakespeare, Goethe, Kleist, Stendhal, Storm, Flaubert, Dostoevsky, Proust) and philosophy (Plato, Camus, Sartre, Lvi-Strauss, Derrida, Vattimo), Palaver uses mimetic theory to explore the themes they present. A highly accessible book, this text is complemented by bibliographical references to Girard's widespread work and secondary literature on mimetic theory and its applications, comprising a valuable bibliographical archive that provides the reader with an overview of the development and discussion of mimetic theory until the present day
The European wars of religion : an interdisciplinary reassessment of sources, interpretations, and myths by Dietmar Regensburger( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years religion has resurfaced amongst academics, in many ways replacing class as the key to understanding Europe's historical development. This has resulted in an explosion of studies revisiting issues of region, confessional violence and holy war during the early modern period. But the interpretation of the European wars of religion still remains constrained by national boundaries, tied into the process of state building as well as nation building. In order to untangle this complex web and more thoroughly interrogate these concepts and assumptions, this volume focusses on terms repeatedly used and misused in public debates such as 'religious violence' and 'holy warfare' within the context of military conflicts labelled 'religious wars'. The chapters not only focus on the role of religion, but also on the emerging state as a driver of the escalation of violence in the age of religious war"--
The Palgrave handbook of mimetic theory and religion( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Palgrave Handbook of Mimetic Theory and Religion draws on the expertise of leading scholars and thinkers to explore the violent origins of culture, the meaning of ritual, and the conjunction of theology and anthropology, as well as secularization, science, and terrorism. Authors assess the contributions of René Girard's mimetic theory to our understanding of sacrifice, ancient tragedy, and post-modernity, and apply its insights to religious cinema and the global economy. This handbook serves as introduction and guide to a theory of religion and human behavior that has established itself as fertile terrain for scholarly research and intellectual reflection"--Back cover
Westliche Moderne, Christentum und Islam Gewalt als Anfrage an monotheistische Religionen by Wolfgang Palaver( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publications of the interdisciplinary and internationally networked Research Platform "World Order - Religion - Violence" seek to improve our understanding of the relationship between religion, politics and violence. It therefore deals especially with the return of religious themes and symbols into politics, with the analysis of the link between political theory and religion, and finally with the critical discussion of the secularization thesis. At the centre of the research are questions concerning the causes of violent conflict, the possibilities for a just world order and the conditions for peaceful coexistence on a local, regional, national and international/worldwide scale between communities in the face of divergent religious and ideological convictions. Its task is to initiate and coordinate thematically related research-efforts from various disciplinary backgrounds at the University of Innsbruck. It creates a network between departments, research-teams and single researchers working on topics of religion, politics and violence. The overall aim of the research platform World Order-Religion-Violence is to promote excellence in social and human science research on religion and politics at the University of Innsbruck and to guarantee the diffusion of this particular competence on a national and international level."

Transforming the sacred into saintliness : reflecting on violence and religion with René Girard by Wolfgang Palaver( )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies into religion and violence often put religion first. René Girard started with violence in his book Violence and the Sacred and used the Durkheimian term "sacred" as its correlate in his study of early religions. During the unfolding of his theory, he more and more distinguished the sacred from saintliness to address the break that the biblical revelation represented in comparison with early religions. This distinction between the sacred and saintliness resembles Henri Bergson's complementing Emile Durkheim's identification of the sacred and society with a dynamic religion that relies on individual mystics. Girard's distinction also relates to the insights of thinkers like JacquesMaritain, Simone Weil, and Emmanuel Levinas. This Element explores some of Girard's main features of saintliness. Girard pleaded for the transformation of the sacred into holy, not their separation"-- Back cover

Politische Philosophie versus politische Theologie? die Frage der Gewalt im Spannungsfeld von Politik und Religion by Marina Cattaruzza( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in German and English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Sammelband widmet sich der kritischen Diskussion der Thesen von Mark Lilla und Heinrich Meier über die Rückkehr des Religiösen in die Politik, besonders im Blick auf den Islam. Systematisch werden die Konzeptionen Politische Theologie und Politische Philosophie hinsichtlich des Problems der Gewalt, wie es sich seit der Zeit der "Religionskriege“ und besonders in unserer Gegenwart stellt, untersucht. Dabei geht es vor allem auch um die Prüfung der These, inwiefern sich die westliche Moderne tatsächlich von einer Ablösung der Politischen Theologie durch die Politische Philosophie kennzeichnen lässt, sowie um die noch grundsätzlichere Frage, ob eine Absage an Politische Theologien überhaupt möglich ist. Aus historischer Sicht wird die Frage diskutiert, wie sich die Konzeption der "Politischen Religionen“ gegenüber der systematischen Unterscheidung von Politischer Theologie und Politischer Philosophie verhält: Wie lassen sich die Entstehung der totalitären politischen Religionen von Nationalsozialismus und Marxismus-Leninismus im Blick auf die These von der "Great Separation“ verstehen?
