Evolution and Conversion PB
Full Product Description
Hailed by Michel Serres as the Charles Darwin of human sciences, Girard is in fact one of the few thinkers who has given full consideration to an evolutionary perspective to explain the emergence of culture and institutions. Evolution and Conversion draws out not only this aspect of his thought but also emphasises the centrality of religion to his work. Girards reflection on the relationship between violence and religion is both original and persuasive and, given the urgency of this issue in our contemporary world, in need of a reappraisal.

Chapter 3: The Symbolic Species
Chapter 4. Critique and Dialogue: From Frazer to Levi-Strauss
