Philosophy Professor William Newell has authored a book, "Desire in Rene Girard and Jesus," published by Lexington Books. Lexington said Newell's book "presents a comprehensive analysis of Rene Girard's work on the origins of culture and the depths of human desires. Newell challenges Girard's interpretation of Jesus's Passion as non-sacrificial, and offers a close reading of Girard's works on mimetic desire, scapegoating and sacrifice."
