«imitation desire» is one of the reference theories for many analyzes of narratives and religious mythical and social-political competition. According to this theory the desire is not internal matter or completely internal but is formed following one the desire. Therefore, the desire of one person or group is imitated by the desire of another or others. This desire, which first begins as an imitation of a pattern, over time leads to the imitation and the pattern relationship becoming a competitive relationship between the two to obtain the desired object. According to this theory, desire is not internal or completely internal, but is formed following another desire. When competition intensifies, it becomes violence and the crisis begins. Because crisis means an unsolvable situation. According to Girard’s theory, the only way to prevent complete destruction of all need a sacrifice. The sacrifice of society transforms “all against all” into the society of “all against one” and leaves the crisis by sacrificing. Girard himself refers to the interpretation of the narrative, but has never criticized the paintings of this narrative with his theory.
