by Gerry Coulter


I’m European, I’m condemned to a kind of objective historical nihilism, you are forced to admit to yourself that everything radical you can say or do in this society will only ever be the radicality of this corrupt society.” — Jean Baudrillard

Product Description
It is in the deserts of postmodernity where Baudrillard both found and left us. It is in these deserts that we become aware, as did Baudrillard and other poststructuralist thinkers, that theory precedes the world (there is nothing that can be said of the world that is not already framed by our approach to it). It is within Coulter’s absolutely lucid exploration – and it goes without saying that the work of Jean Baudrillard should be recognized in such an appropriate revelation – that Baudrillard’s thought is unveiled.
