It is in the deserts of postmodernity where Baudrillard both found and left us. It is in these deserts that we become aware, as did Baudrillard and other poststructuralist thinkers, that theory precedes the world (there is nothing that can be said of the world that is not already framed by our approach to it). It is within Coulter's absolutely lucid exploration - and it goes without saying that the work of Jean Baudrillard should be recognized in such an appropriate revelation - that Baudrillard's thought is unveiled.
Gerry Coulter is the founding editor of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies He has received Bishop’s University’s highest award for teaching – the William and Nancy Turner Prize.
