A survey of recent empirical evidence for Rene Girard's mimetic account of human desire that has emerged in studies of human behaviour, located against the evolving arc of primate prains. Studies of infant intersubjectivity, illumined and deepened by the recent discovery and mapping of the mirror neuron system, make a compelling case.
