Product Description
Cultural theorists Hassan and Ruiz explore the concept of integral reality as articulated first by Jean Baudrillard in Le Pacte de lucidité ou l’intelligence du Mal (Éditions Galilée: 2004)

“The effacement of God has left us face to face with reality. What about the effacement of reality? Is this a negative destiny, or simply the absence of destiny, the advent of an implacable banality, linked to the integral calculation of reality? But, fate has not said its last word." Jean Baudrillard (July 27, 1929 - March 6, 2007)
