Symbolic exchange and death by Jean Baudrillard( )

123 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Baudrillard is one of the most celebrated and most controversial of contemporary social theorists. This major work occupies a central place in the rethinking of the humanities and social sciences around the idea of postmodernism. It leads the reader on an exhilarating tour encompassing the end of Marxism, the enchantment of fashion, symbolism about sex and the body, and the relations between economic exchange and death. Most significantly, the book represents Baudrillard's fullest elaboration of the concept of the three orders of the simulacra, defining the historical passage from production to reproduction to simulation. A classic in its field, Symbolic Exchange and Death is a key source for the redefinition of contemporary social thought. Baudrillard's critical gaze appraises social theories as diverse as cybernetics, ethnography, psychoanalysis, feminism, Marxism, communications theory and semiotics. This English translation begins with a new introductory essay. --
The vital illusion by Jean Baudrillard( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Dutch and held by 2,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Aren't we actually sick of sex, of difference, of emancipation, of culture?" With this provocative taunt, Jean Baudrillard challenges us to face up to our deadly, technologically empowered renunciation of mortality and subjectivity as he grapples with the complex issues that define our postmillenial world. What does the advent and proliferation of cloning mean for our sense of ourselves as human beings? What does the turn of the millenium say about our relation to time and history? What does the instantaneous, virutal realm of cyberspace do to reality? In The Vital Illusion, Baudrillard leads his readers to some surprising conclusions."--Jacket
The system of objects by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

228 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 1,712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pressing Freudian and Saussurean categories into the service of a basically Marxist perspective, The System of Objects offers a cultural critique of the commodity in consumer society. Baudrillard classifies the everyday objects of the 'new technical order' as functional, nonfunctional and metafunctional. He contrasts 'modern' and 'traditional' functional objects, subjecting home furnishing and interior design to a celebrated semiological analysis. His treatment of nonfunctional or 'marginal' objects focuses on antiques and the psychology of collecting, while the metafunctional category extends to the useless, the aberrant and even the 'schizofunctional'. Finally, Baudrillard deals at length with the implications of credit and advertising for the commodification of everyday life
The uncollected Baudrillard by Jean Baudrillard( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Baudrillard is generally recognized as one of the most important and provocative contemporary social theorists. But in the English speaking world, his reputation is largely based on books published after the 1960s, as he moved towards becoming the premier commentator on postmodernism
The consumer society : myths and structures by Jean Baudrillard( )

41 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now available in English, Baudrillard's The Consumer Society examines the process and meaning of consumption in contemporary culture. It makes a vital contribution to current debates on consumption as Baudrillard demonstrates that consumption is the axis of culture. This text includes a systematic discussion and application of key themes in Baudrillard's work, such as simulation and the simulacrum, through a rigorous inquiry into 'the social logic of consumption'."--Jacket

110 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected writings by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

50 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kean Baudrillard is one of the most topical and controversial theorists in France today. He has played a major role in the development of critical social theory and cultural sociology, and his writings are currently at the center of the 'post-modernism' debate. This volume makes his most important work widely available in English for the first time. It includes selections from the entire range of his writings, from his early work on advertising and commodity culture to his most recent writings on simulation and desire. Throughout the selections Baudrillard stresses the ways in which our lives are embedded in a world if images which have no clear reference and which are reproduced by the new mechanisms of cultural production in contemporary societies. The central themes of Baudrillard's work are outlined in an introduction by Mark Poster. The selections in this volume represent a cross section of Baudrillard's writings from 1968 to 1985 and are drawn mostly from his major books. About half of the selections appear in English translation for the first time
The spirit of terrorism ; and, Other essays by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

59 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Baudrillard sees the power of terrorism as lying in the symbolism of slaughter - not merely the reality of death, but a sacrificial death that challenges a whole system. Where the revolutionary of the past sought to conduct a struggle of real forces in the context of ideology and politics, the new terrorist mounts a powerful symbolic challenge, which, when combined with high-tech resources, constitutes an unprecedented assault on an over-sophisticated and vulnerable West. The new edition is updated with the recent essays 'Hypotheses on Terrorism' and 'Violence of the Global'."--Jacket
Seduction by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

92 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seduction, in French thinker Baudrillard's apocalyptic discourse, is a power of attraction and fascination capable of subverting mechanical, orgasm-centered sexuality and reality in general. Two chief obstacles to unleashing the potentially liberating forces of seduction are the women's movement and psychoanalysis, charges the author of America and Forget Foucault. While recognizing that seduction has a negative side--turning the seduced person away from his/her true thoughts and impulses--Baudrillard is intrigued by the seductive processes at work in the vertigo induced by games, in magic and the lottery, in the transvestite's "total gestural, sensual and ritual" behavior. He decodes pornography as "an orgy of realism," a hyperreality of signs. In his analysis, seduction has itself been corrupted in a world of manufactured desires and ready-made satisfactions. With seductive irony, Baudrillard storms the fragile phallic fortress of patriarchy in this heady, sometimes obscure meditation. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (Dec. 26, 2012)

The perfect crime by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

50 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

However, whether stripping away the layers of hypocrisy which surround our smug perceptions of the former Yugoslavia, or deploring the New European Order characterized by 'white fundamentalism, protectionism, discrimination and control', the moraliste is also the deft and disturbing social theorist. Where critics like McLuhan once exposed the alienating consequences of 'the medium', Baudrillard lays bare the depredatory effects of an oppressive transparency, on our social lives of a relentless positivity on our critical faculties, and of a withering 'high definition' on our very sense of reality

The singular objects of architecture by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

46 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wide-ranging conversation bridges architecture and philosophy as Jean Baudrillard and Jean Nouvel discuss such topics as the city of tomorrow and the ideal of transparency, the gentrification of New York City, and Frank Gehry's surprising Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Nouvel prompts Baudrillard to reflect on his signature concepts (the virtual, transparency, fatal strategies, oblivion, and seduction), and the confrontation between philosophical concerns and the specificity of architecture creates novel and striking formulations - and new ways of understanding the connections between the practitioner and the philosopher, the object and the idea."--Cover

Impossible exchange by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everything starts out from impossible exchange. The uncertainty of the world lies in the fact that it has no equivalent anywhere; it cannot be exchanged for anything. The uncertainty of thought lies in the fact that it cannot be exchanged either for truth or for reality." "Jean Baudrillard's now familiar investigations into reality and hyper-reality shift here into a more metaphysical frame. Working his way through the various spheres and systems of everyday life - the political, the juridical, the economical, the aesthetic, the biological, among others - he finds that they are all characterised by the same non-equivalence, and hence the same eccentricity. Literally, they have no meaning outside themselves and cannot be exchanged for anything. Politics is laden with signs and meanings, but seen from the outside it has no meaning. Schemes for genetic experimentation and investigation are becoming infinitely ramified, and the more ramified they become the more the crucial question is left unanswered: who rules over life, who rules over death?" "Baudrillard's conclusion is that the true formula of contemporary nihilism lies here: the nihilism of value itself. This is our fate, and from this stem both the happiest and the most baleful consequences. This book might be said to be the exploration, first, of the 'fateful' consequences, and subsequently - by a poetic transference of situation - of the fortunate, happy consequences of impossible exchange."--Jacket
The transparency of evil : essays on extreme phenomena by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postmodern sociologist-prophet Jean Baudrillard examines the legacy of the 1960s, the "orgy" that, he argues, gave birth to our age of dizzying simulation, reproduction, eclecticism, and prosthesis. Explaining how sexual liberation confused the categories of man and woman, artistic innovation conjured a 'transaesthetic realm of indifference', and political revolution perpetuated a diorama world of political forms, Baudrillard uncovers a culture of empty rights that forces us to come to terms with a dramatic new perspective on Evil and conduct a fundamental reassessment of otherness. Working through these contemporary riddles, The Transparency of Evil transforms the way we understand the jumble of our daily lives - from the gyrations of the stock market to those of Michael Jackson. -- Back cover
Les stratégies fatales by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

60 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Screened out by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World-renowned for his lively and often iconoclastic reading of contemporary culture and thought, Jean Baudrillard here turns his hand to topical political debates and issues. In this collection of journalistic essays Baudrillard addresses subjects ranging from those already established as his trademark (virtual reality, Disney, television) to more unusual topics such as the Western intervention in Bosnia, children's rights, Holocaust revisionism, AIDS, the Rushdie fatwa, Formula One racing, mad cow disease, genetic cloning, and the uselessness of Chirac. These are coruscating and intriguing articles, not least because they show that Baudrillard is - pace his critics - still susceptible and alert to influences from social movements and the world beyond the hyperreal."--BOOK JACKET
