Description

Mike Gane provides an introduction to recent developments in French theorist Jean Baudrillard's thinking. This volume reflects Baudrillard's new concern with radical uncertainty and the way in which he has reconfigured his earlier thinking in the light of more recent ideas and theories.The author disputes the notion that Baudrillard has now become an increasingly extreme theorist, remote from the realities of the world - and argues instead that new developments in Baudrillard's work are a more appropriate reflection on a world of extremes. This book explicitly challenges the conservative response to Baudrillard's work, and underlines the significance of what Baudrillard himself terms the `fourth order of simulation', in a major contribution to new debates on the significance of recent developments in Western culture and society.show more
