Dr Stéphane Vinolo's book is published in Brazil

Dr Vinolo's book focuses on the process of hominisation in relation to the solution to the violence generated by desires. He argues that the Girardien model helps to understand how the origins of culture is nothing but the appearance of a particular mode of management of violence. The book was originally published in French in 2006 by L'harmattan

Dr Vinolo is a Lecturer in French in Department of Languages and Cross-cultural Studies, Faculty of Business and Management at Regent's College London.
