This volume elaborates a theory of sacrifice designed to explore the culture of violence. In particular, the author wants to explain why speech becomes so inadequate that acts of violence against human bodies becomes necessary, why it is more often female bodies that are the objects of violence, and why this violence is exercised against scapegoats that act as substitues for its original object.
