Violence and the Sacred

Ren Girard (1923- ) was Professor of French Language, Literature and Civilization at Stanford Unviersity from 1981 until his retirement in 1995. Violence and the Sacred is Girard's brilliant study of human evil. Girard explores violence as it is represented and occurs throughout history, literature and myth. Girard's forceful and thought-provoking analyses of Biblical narrative, Greek tragedy and the lynchings and pogroms propagated by contemporary states illustrate his central argument that violence belongs to everyone and is at the heart of the sacred. Translated by Patrick Gregory.

  • "R. Girard entreprend de remonter aux origines de l'édifice culturel et social qui est au coeur de notre civilisation. S'appuyant sur une relecture très personnelle des tragiques grecs et sur une discussion serrée des principaux systèmes d'explication, en particulier la psychanalyse, cette enquête originale met l'accent sur le rôle fondamental de la violence fondatrice et de la victime émissaire."
