Jean Baudrillard is one of the most celebrated and most controversial of contemporary social theorists. This major work occupies a central place in the rethinking of the humanities and social sciences around the idea of postmodernism.
It leads the reader on an exhilarating tour encompassing the end of Marxism, the enchantment of fashion, symbolism about sex and the body, and the relations between economic exchange and death. Most significantly, the book represents Baudrillards fullest elaboration of the concept of the three orders of the simulacra, defining the historical passage from production to reproduction to simulation.
A classic in its field,Symbolic Exchange and Deathis a key source for the redefinition of contemporary social thought. Baudrillards critical gaze appraises social theories as diverse as cybernetics, ethnography, psychoanalysis, feminism, Marxism, communications theory and semiotics.
