Baudrillard's bestiary : Baudrillard and culture by Mike Gane( )

24 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mike Gane provides an introduction to Baudrillard's cultural theory: the conception of modernity and the complex process of simulation. He examines Baudrillard's literary essays: his confrontation with Calvino, Styron, Ballard and Borges. Gane offers a coherent account of Baudrillard's theory of cultural ambience, and the culture of consumer society. And it provides an introduction to Baudrillard's fiction theory, and the analysis of transpolitical figures. The book also includes an interesting and provocative comparison of Baudrillard's powerful essay against the modernist Pompidou Centre in Paris and Frederic Jameson's analysis of the Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles. An interpretation of this encounter leads to the presentation of a very different Baudrillard from that which figures in contemporary debates on postmodernism

The work of Michel Foucault, one of the most influential of modern French social theorists and philosophers, has had a dramatic and far-reaching effect on many disciplines.

The nature of sociology : two essays by Marcel Mauss( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book consists of translations of two of Mauss's most significant statements on the social sciences. The first, an early contribution written with Fauconnet, outlines the methodological orientations of the school. The second, written somewhat later, examines the internal organization of sociology as a division of labor. Anthropologists as well as sociologists will find these essays of much interest. Amongst the issues raised by them are how far was Mauss a systematic thinker and how did he see the relation between anthropology and sociology."--Jacket
