    Places, Practices and Contestations, 1st Edition

    1st Edition

    By Lucien Lecy-Bruhl

  • Revival: Primitive Mentality (1923)

    1st Edition

    By Lucien Levy-Bruhl

  • Imitation, Contagion, Suggestion

    On Mimesis and Society, 1st Edition

    Edited by Christian Borch

    Terrorist attacks seem to mimic other terrorist attacks. Mass shootings appear to mimic previous mass shootings. Financial traders seem to mimic other traders.
