    La mimesi e la traccia. Contributi per un’ontologia dell’attualità.Emanuele Antonelli - 2013 - Milano: Mimesis.
    The reflection elaborated in these pages, fleeing all submission to the now abused rhetoric of the prevailing economism, traces in the works of René Girard - the most serious pretender to the legacy of the masters of suspicion - and Jacques Derrida - the last great philosopher of the twentieth century - the constituent elements of a critical paradigm with which to interpret the present time. The volume investigates the multiple correspondences between the different legacies of deconstruction and the most (...)

  2. Mimesis, kenosis, autoreferenzialità.Emanuele Antonelli - 2015 - Bollettino Filosofico 30:225-246.
    In this paper we offer an interpretation of the inner relationship between nihilism and the tragic. With reference to the work of Heinz von Foester and to the sciences of complexity, we will argue that the essential feature of the tragic is “autoreferentiality”. Furthermore, arguing in favor of the use of the theological notion of kenōsis as the most precise description of the “history of nihilism”, we will show that the latter is to be understood in terms of the “weakening”, (...)

  3. The Child of Fortune: Envy and the Constitution of the Social Space.Emanuele Antonelli - 2013 - Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis, and Culture 20:117-140.
    In this paper, we sketch out a simple scheme to evaluate different ways in which Western society has coped with the momentous and hidden problem of envy; afterward, we consider the consequences for the constitution of the social space that these changes entail. We will argue that envy, when considered as a primal feeling, can shed light on René Girard’s notion of metaphysical desire and on diasparagmos rituals. Then, taking into account Jean-Pierre Dupuy’s endogenous fixed point thesis—concerning the constitution of (...)

    Little Red Riding Hood: Victimage in Folktales and Cinema—A Case Study.Emanuele Antonelli - 2015 - Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis, and Culture 22:107-132.
    In this paper we attempt to interpret Little Red Riding Hood’s most famous variants in light of its recent film adaptations. With reference to René Girard’s theory of sacrifice, we will argue that the latest one of these, Catherine Hardwicke’s 2011 adaptation offers the chance to see in Perrault’s “Little Red Riding Hood” the result of a diachronical evolution in four steps of the misrecognizing narration of a collective lynching, a full-fledged scapegoating of an anonymous villager accused and persecuted as (...)

    Modern Pathologies and the Displacement of the Sacred.Emanuele Antonelli - 2017 - In Wolfgang Palaver & James Allison (eds.), The Palgrave Handbook of Mimetic Theory and Religion. London: Palgrave MacMillan. pp. 319-325.
    Girard’s attempts to present his main ideas have been numerous and, according to himself, never fully satisfying: many problems arise when looking for the best way to explain what Mimetic Theory is about, mainly because the order of the discourse and the logic of the underlying long argument, just as the micro level of the analysis and the macro one, are twisted with one another in a hermeneutical circle that can easily be misinterpreted as vicious. A thorough work of analysis (...)

    Due o tre cose sul merito. Saggio di estetica sociale.Emanuele Antonelli - 2021 - Milano: Meltemi.
    Il tema del merito ha avuto molte vite, in tradizioni e culture diverse, trovando di recente rinnovata centralità su entrambi i lati dell’Atlantico. Il volume si prefigge l’obiettivo di analizzarne le ragioni, indagarne le condizioni di possibilità, valutarne limiti e problemi.

  7. La creatività degli eventi.Emanuele Antonelli - 2011 - Torino: L'Harmattan Italia.
    This book reconstructs some of the phases and themes of the debate - never completely celebrated - between René Girard and Jacques Derrida. The volume recapitulates the essential aspects of mimetic theory and traces the development of the theoretical tools underlying the thought of deconstruction to set up the confrontation and meeting between the two great French thinkers. With a preface by Paul Dumouchel.

    Mimesis and Attention.Emanuele Antonelli - 2018 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 23 (2):259-274.
    One might well wonder about the source of Girard’s knowledge. Where is it thought to have come from in the first place? From what vantage point are we supposed to be surveying the events he claims are originary? And what, then, is the condition for the very possibility of his Christian wisdom? In this paper, I argue that we can put forward a tentative solution by looking at one particular aspect of all the texts that Girard has interpreted: they are (...)

    De la Pharmacologie. Entretien avec B. Stiegler.Emanuele Antonelli - 2011 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 1:71-87.
    In Voyous, Jacques Derrida develops his argument starting from the presupposition that democracy as such is the entity whose integrity and immunity are at stake and, therefore, under investigation. This gesture reflects the setting in which ten years before, in Foi et savoir, he had cast his reasoning about the logic of immunity. There, it was one of the sources of religion, the immunity of the sacred, that operated according to this logic. The hyphen between these two essays, beside Derrida’s (...)

    Formativité et auto-transcendance dans l'Esthétique de L. Pareyson.Emanuele Antonelli - 2018 - TRÓPOS - Rivista di Ermeneutica E Critica Filosofica (2):79-96.
    In this paper we argue that Pareyson’s notion of formativity is germane to the notion of self–transcendence recently put forward in the vast domain of the sciences of the self–organization of complex systems. Following Jean–Pierre Dupuy’s approach, we will not apply this notion to the analysis of Pareyson’s theory; we will, instead, show— by referring to thenumerous topoi where often surprisingly precise parallelisms, onvergences and semantic identities are to be found—that, though being largely independent in their genesis, the logics of (...)

    Mimesis and the Trace: Ancient Perspectives on Social Ontology and Religion.Emanuele Antonelli - 2018 - Proceedings of the XXIII World Congress of Philosophy 10:19-25.
    Recovering an ancient debate on the meaning of the Latin word pomoerium, I will show that if John Searle has offered the standard version of social ontology, Maurizio Ferraris has good reasons to claim that his ‘Theory of Documentality’ can go further. Nonetheless, his anti-post-modernism and his blindness about the religious origins of the social objects he deals with, reduce the width of his argument. Complementing his hasty analysis of mimesis with the mimetic theory of religion, violence and the sacred, (...)
