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.
Gerry Coulter is the founding editor of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies, and the author of Jean Baudrillard: From the Ocean to the Desert, or the Poetics of Radicality, as well as Art After the Avant-Garde: Baudrillard's Challenge. He has received Bishop’s University’s highest award for teaching – the William and Nancy Turner Prize.
