    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    European literature and theory of the twentieth century have been intensely preoccupied with questions of 'Desire', whereas 'love' has increasingly represented a fractured and strange, if not actually suspect, proposal: this is a prime symptom of an age of deep cultural mutation and uncertainty.

    Are religions intrinsically violent (as is strenuously argued by the ?new atheists?)?

    From his groundbreaking Violence and the Sacred and Things Hidden since the Foundation of the World , René Girard?s mimetic theory is presented as elucidating ?the origins of culture.?
