Product Description
An annotated portfolio of hundreds of people who appear in Baudrillard's books. The entries in this book are intended to provide the reader with an assessment of Baudrillard's major and minor influences, numerous people who stimulated his thinking about a variety of his key concepts, as well as those that were simply kindred spirits or favorite artists. This work illuminates some of the most significant, and often surprising, influences on Baudrillard's thought, and his many references to literary sources. It shows Baudrillard was paramount among contemporary theorists in showing how, by example, theory fed off literature and art as our poststructural present advanced after the mid-1960s.
