Description - Baudrillard Live by Mike Gane
Baudrillard Live collects together many interviews which have been published in very different locations and publications into a coherent work, which with new interviews and an introduction makes available the conversational thought of one of the leading French intellectuals associated with postmodernism. The scope of the interviews is enormous, from the experience of visiting the cinema and on film and photography through to the Gulf War and the new world order. Baudrillard is well known for his critique of modernity. This work is an essential complement to this body of writing and reveals Baudrillard thinking on his feet. It provides a peerless supplement to his often difficult writing and it illuminates many points of contention in his work, particularly those relating to postmodernism. But the book is far more than a supplement. It is in its own right a document of the highest importance in the critique of modern society, and it raises many disturbing issues and problems. The collection is edited by a leading authority on Baudrillard's work.
It will appeal not only to those interested in French intellectual life but also to those interested in the debate on modernity and postmodernity. It is an essential document in the understanding of one of the most creative and important French thinkers alive today.
