About the Author

Paul Dumouchel is Professor of Philosophy at the Graduate School of Core Ethics and Frontier Sciences, Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan.


"The primary function of the modern state is to protect us from our own violence. Paul Dumouchel uncovers the hidden paradox behind this classical thesis: why do states commit massive violence against their own citizens? The Barren Sacrifice is a powerful, lively, and clear contribution to penetrate into the heart of new forms of modern and contemporary political violence."
--Stefano Tomelleri, Professor of Sociology, University of Bergamo
