    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    The Western tradition has long held the view that while it is possible to know that God exists, it nevertheless remains impossible to know what God is.

    Parting ways with the Freudian and Lacanian readings that have dominated recent scholarly understanding of Hitchcock, David Humbert examines the roots of violence in the director?s narratives and finds them not in human sexuality but in mimesis.
