The first full-length translation in English of an very important work of postmodernism.The publication of “”Simulacra et Simulation”” in 1981 marked Jean Baudrillard’s first vital step toward theorizing the postmodern. Moving away from the Marxist/Freudian approaches that had concerned him in advance, Baudrillard developed on this book a theory of latest culture that is dependent upon displacing economic notions of cultural production with notions of cultural expenditure.Baudrillard uses the concepts of the simulacra – the copy without an original – and simulation. These terms are a very powerful to an figuring out of the postmodern, to the extent that they address the concept that of mass reproduction and reproduceability that characterizes our electronic media culture.Baudrillard’s book represents a unique and original effort to rethink cultural theory from the point of view of a new concept of cultural materialism, one that radically redefines postmodern formulations of the body.
