Buddhism as an antidote to Girard fatalism

Buddhism as an antidote to Girard fatalism

Girard mimetic theory explains how our we copy each-others desires, thus creating an inescapable, endless cycle of violence. His apocalyptic predictions seem more like a form of incomplete thinking than a definitive conclusion to his theories.

Jonathan Bi, a Girardian scholar and a Buddhist practitioner aims to complete mimetic theory by putting it under the light of Buddhist phenomenology. His ambition is to show that mimetic theory and Buddhism complete each other.

Can we renounce desire?

Can we renounce desire?

According to Girard himself the escape from mimetism is a path only for lucky “geniuses and saints.” Jonathan proposes a solution grounded in Buddhist emptiness and compassion, that will end the cycle of violence, cultivate love & motivate us to inovate.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Jonathan Bi is attempting to reconcile Girardian fatalism with a Buddhism enlightenment. A very deep philosophical exploration that I recommend reading from start to finish.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
