Modern Philo Par Excellence

This book is a riot and a total joy to read. Baudrillard skitters over all the modern fixtures (Nietzsche, Freud, Marx, Derrida) citing no one, instead whipping together confections that result in immediate addiction to his prosaic bakery. All his books glow like embers after being read, but this one in particular sews up a lot of his interests: modern existence enslaved by the eye, history as a mass recapitulation of fantasy put on by nostalgia, the secret as already always revealed.

A stimulating book

A major contribution to the theory of postmodernity written in a mentally stimulating way.
