Write The First Customer Review

Using mimetic theory to engage political studies, Farneti highlights reciprocal imitation as the fundamental cause of human discord, the mechanisms of spontaneous polarization in human conflicts (i.e., the emergence of dyads or doubles ), and the strange and ever-"growing resemblance" of the mimetic rivals, which is precisely what pushes them to annihilate each other."
