Simulacra and Simulation

封面
University of Michigan Press, 1994 - 164 頁
The publication in France of Simulacra et Simulation in 1981 marked Jean Baudrillard's first important step toward theorizing the postmodern. Moving away from the Marxist/Freudian approaches that had concerned him earlier, Baudrillard developed in this book a theory of contemporary culture that relies on displacing economic notions of cultural production with notions of cultural expenditure. Baudrillard uses the concepts of the simulacrum-the copy without an original-and simulation, crucial to an understanding of the postmodern, to address the concept of mass reproduction and reproducibility that characterizes our electronic media culture. Translator Sheila Faria Glaser provides the first complete English edition of Baudrillard's rich speculations on the simulacrum: from the hologram to Apocalypse Now, clones to Crash, and Disneyland to Three Mile Island. Simulacra and Simulation represents a unique and original effort to rethink cultural theory from the perspective of a new concept of cultural materialism, one that radically redefines postmodern formulations of the body. Jean Baudrillard, one of France's leading intellectuals, began teaching in 1966 at Nanterre in Paris, where he spent most of his teaching career. -- Publisher description

A turning point for intellectual expansion towards the end of last century. The Matrix, Altered Carbon or The Bequeathal-Godsent would not have happened without this one. A very important read. 閱讀評論全文
