A new (mimetic) paradigm for our postsacrificial times -- The mimetic context of the "new wars" -- Cleavage lines in global politics -- A mimetic perspective on conflict resolution -- A political theology of the empty tomb -- Epilogue : A genealogy of "planetary reciprocity."
Farneti highlights phenomena that political scientists have consistently failed to notice, such as reciprocal imitation as the fundamental cause of human discord, the mechanisms of spontaneous polarization in human conflicts (i.e., the emergence of dyads or "doubles"), and the strange and ever-growing resemblance of the mimetic rivals, which is precisely what pushes them to annihilate each other--Provided by publisher.
