JEAN BAUDRILLARD TRANSPARENCY OF EVIL PDF

I pick on the Baudrillard because, quite simply, it is the most fun. This is Jackson before the child abuse allegations; but these accusations would have come as no surprise to Baudrillard, and are not in the slightest way inconsistent with what he has written in this book. And you suspect the subsequent mass public mawkishness regarding his death cf Jade Goody would have been observed by him with a rueful shrug and the words, "I told you so". As a matter of fact, we are so terrified of Evil, so greedy for euphemisms to denote the Other, misfortune, or other irreducibles, that we no longer even refer to a cripple as such. Much of what he says falls into the category of uncomfortable truth, and if that raises your hackles, wait till you get to what he has to say about Holocaust denial, or our insistence on "rights".

This book is from the Verso Radical Thinkers imprint, which always has me expecting politically revolutionary ideas, or overt Marxism, neither of which Baudrillard embraces. In fact, he explicitly identifies Jean Baudrillard was probably one of the contemporary French postmodern philosophers and sociologists whose ideas were most accessible relatively speaking and well-received in the United States. In fact, he explicitly identifies himself as a post-Marxist. I sometimes have a problem with shorter pieces not just in philosophy , and this book can at times seem to be a mile wide and only an inch deep. In only two-hundred pages, there are twenty-two chapters, although there are a few general ideas that he keeps hammering home: he is infatuated with scientific and especially medical metaphors, and continually uses them in trying to diagnose the postmodern society; AIDS, cancer, and computer viruses pop up over and over again throughout the essays.

JEAN BAUDRILLARD THE TRANSPARENCY OF EVIL PDF

For Baudrillard, as for the situationists, it was consumption rather than production that was the main driver of capitalist society. Baudrillard argued, drawing from Georges Bataille , that needs are constructed, rather than innate. He stressed that all purchases, because they always signify something socially, have their fetishistic side. Objects always, drawing from Roland Barthes , "say something" about their users. And this was, for him, why consumption was and remains more important than production: because the "ideological genesis of needs" precedes the production of goods to meet those needs. Example: a pen writes; a refrigerator cools.
