René Girard’s last laugh


rene-girardThe renowned French theorist René Girard, died last Wednesday. He was a personal friend and subject of my forthcoming biography with Michigan State University Press. It’s not easy to convey the pleasure of his company, and why it was so easy to spend hours talking to him, but this short video just about does it.

Many thanks to Artur Sebastian Rosman, for bringing it to my attention. And to Daniel Lance, for making the 2009 video in the first place.
