Christianity, truth, and weakening faith : a dialogue by Gianni Vattimo( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The debate over the place of religion in secular, democratic societies often polarizes around simplistic reductions, making efforts at reconciliation impossible. Yet more rational stances do exist, positions that broker a peace between relativism and religion in people's public, private, and ethical lives." "Christianity, Truth, and Weakening Faith advances just such a dialogue, featuring the collaboration of two major philosophers known for their progressive approach to this issue. Seeking unity over difference, Gianni Vattimo and Rene Girard turn to Max Weber, Eric Auerbach, and Marcel Gauchet, among others, in their exploration of truth and liberty, relativism and faith, and the tensions of new forms of religiously inspired violence." "Vattimo and Girard ultimately conclude that secularism and the involvement (or lack thereof) of religion in governance are, in essence, produced by Christianity. In other words, Christianity is "the religion of the exit from religion," and democracy, civil rights, the free market, and individual freedoms are all facilitated by Christian culture. Through an exchange both intimate and enlightening, Vattimo and Girard share their unparalleled insight into religion, modernity, and the role of Christianity, especially as it exists in our multicultural world."--Jacket

Sacrifice by Ren Girard( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in Italian and English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Sacrifice, René Girard interrogates the Brahmanas of Vedic India, exploring coincidences with mimetic theory that are too numerous and striking to be accidental. Even that which appears to be dissimilar fails to contradict mimetic theory, but instead corresponds to the minimum of illusion without which sacrifice becomes impossible. The Bible reveals collective violence, similar to that which generates sacrifice everywhere, but instead of making victims guilty, the Bible and the Gospels reveal the persecutors of a single victim. Instead of elaborating myths, they tell the truth absolut
