Reviews summary

In my 20s i embarked on a journey to learn why religion exists, how it arises, and why it's necessary in soceity, and the only place that i found that answer was in rene girard's books, which i came across, if i remember correctly, as being referenced in some book by ivan ilich

Girard has a good reputation for respectable science in areas less examined

Five stars are also earned for his descriptions of how certain authors, proust and dostoevsky in particular, have clearly presented the crucial aspects of his mimetic theory in their plots

This is the only aspect of his writing where he himself steps out of the limelight and gives deserving credit to others
