Back in 2008, I wrote a post about a new (then) site that focused on mimesis, mimetic rivalry and Girard’s theory called The Raven Foundation. By (divers and sundry) happenstance I found myself there again tonight.
My how they’ve grown!!!
There is so much information there for anyone interested in learning about mimetic rivalry. There are a lot of links at the top of the page. Hover over and a drop down list appears with a plethora of links to blogs, movie reviews, events, online study guides that all deal with Girard’s theory of mimesis, mimetic rivalry and scapegoating. The focus is on how an understanding of mimetic rivalry can further the cause of peace on earth, goodwill to men.
It really is worth a visit….but if you explore even a few of the many resources available there. plan to stay awhile.
Oh and a side note…in my original blog post….several years ago, I linked to an article called Girard For Dummies. It is now a dead link and unfortunately, I can’t find the article anywhere else online.
