Abstract

RUIZ-LOZANO, Pablo. RENÉ GIRARD: AN ORIGINAL ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM OF A UNIVERSALE CONCRETUM. Univ. philos. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.71, pp.175-200. ISSN 0120-5323.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/javeriana.uph35-71.rguc.

The modern concept of reason called one of the fundamental tenets of Christianity into question: the universal value of the salvation brought to all humanity by Jesus. From a modern point of view, it is not possible for a historic and contingent event, such as the death of Jesus, to bear universal meaning for men of all times. In this article I aim to show how René Girard's anthropological hypothesis offers an alternative answer to the seemingly impossible universale concretum.

Keywords : universale concretum; René Girard; Christianity; rationality; anthropology; theology.
