Mimetic theory contradicts the thesis of human autonomy. It tends to relativize the very possibility of introspection: going into oneself always means finding the other, the mediator, the person who orients my desires without my being aware of it.
-Rene Girard, Battling to the End, p.10
Introspection, rather than finding autonomy, is finding the other. So, introspection is the exploration into the question, which other will you find?
