Description - Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World by Rene Girard

Things Hidden Since the Foundation of the World presents a highly original global theory of culture. Here, in his greatest work, Rene Girard explores the social function of violence and the mechanism of the social scapegoat. Girard's vision is a brilliant and devastating challenge to conventional views of literature, anthropology, religion and psychoanalysis.
