THINGS HIDDEN 34: Mimetic Failure of Mythic Heroes and the Triumph of Christ with Erik Buys
THINGS HIDDEN! David Gornoski is joined by Erik Buys, author at Mimetic Margins, teacher, and elected member of the board of the Colloquium on Violence and Religion (COV&R). What is the difference between Christ’s sacrifice and the three types of heroic sacrifice in mythology? What is extremism and how does it lure people? Why is there closer proximity between the average person and the celebrity in the modern world? How do we rescue a culture steeped in ressentiment? How does Mimetic Theory shine light on teaching dynamics in classrooms? How do we create art that doesn’t emulate the sacrificial violence of ancient myths?
