“Why is there so much violence in our midst?” René Girard asks. “No question is more debated today. And none produces more disappointing answers.” In Girard’s mimetic theory it is the imitation of someone else’s desire that gives rise to conflict whenever the desired object cannot be shared. This mimetic rivalry, Girard argues, is responsible for the frequency and escalating intensity of human conflict. For Girard, human conflict comes not from the loss of reciprocity between humans but from the transition, imperceptible at first but then ever more rapid, from good to bad reciprocity. In this landmark text, Girard continues his study of violence in light of geopolitical competition, focusing on the roots and outcomes of violence across societies latent in the process of globalization. The volume concludes in a wide-ranging interview with the Sicilian cultural theorist Maria Stella Barberi, where Girard’s twenty-first century emphases on the continuity of all religions, global conflict, and the necessity of apocalyptic thinking emerge.

Building on the growing recognition and critical acclaim of volumes 1 and 2 of Violence, Desire, and the Sacred, this third volume in the series showcases the most groundbreaking, interdisciplinary research in mimetic theory, with a focus on well-known films, television series, and other media. Mimesis, Movies, and Media reaches beyond the traditional boundaries of continental theory to demonstrate how scholars apply and develop René Girard's insights in light of contemporary media. It brings together major Australian and international scholars working at the intersection of popular culture and philosophy.

Ist die Entscheidung Jesu, seinen Weg konsequent bis zum Tod am Kreuz zu gehen, eine wirklich freie Entscheidung gewesen? Die alte christologische Frage ist noch immer aktuell und hat angesichts neuerer religionspolitischer Ereignisse sogar an Brisanz gewonnen. In dem vom Raymund Schwager SJ begründeten Ansatz der Dramatischen Theologie spielt der Freiheitsgedanke eine zentrale Rolle. Der Band dokumentiert die Beiträge eines zum Gedenken an den Innsbrucker Dogmatiker stattgefundenen Symposiums.

»Ein großes Buch ... diese imponierende Synthese, die eine Quelle der Inspiration bleiben wird, wenn einmal ein Großteil der heutigen theologischen Produktion vergessen ist.« Joseph Ratzinger in Theologische Revue »In diesem Buch liegt Sprengstoff für manche theologische Verkrustungen, Zündstoff für Kettenreaktionen neuen Denkens in der Kirche.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung »Daß Rahner in großartiger Weise modern denkt, indem er naturwissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse wirklich verarbeitet und über alles Individuelle hinaus auch Natur- und Weltgeschichte mitbedenkt, dafür kann ihm nicht genug gedankt werden.« Neue Züricher Zeitung
