If you spend any time hanging around with Ravens, you will discover that we are mimetic theory nerds! That’s because it forever changed the way we think about ourselves, our faith, and how to make a difference in the world. Mimetic theory is the biggest idea to hit the social sciences in the last sixty years, and if you care about making this world a better place for everyone–including the poor, marginalized and the scapegoated – then you need to know about it.
It’s easy to pick up why mimetic theory matters just from reading our articles, watching our videos, or listening to our podcasts because everything we do is informed by mimetic insights. When you find yourself slapping your forehead and thinking “I never thought about it that way before”, you’re having a mimetic theory moment! It happens to us all the time!
If you’d like a more systematic approach, you will enjoy our “Intro To Mimetic Theory”. It’s a series of seven articles that walk you through the big ideas and how they shift our thinking around relationships, religion and the things that make for peace within us and between us. We hope that you find mimetic theory insights meaningful and relevant to your questions, doubts and concerns.
