BAUDRILLARD THE ECSTASY OF COMMUNICATION PDF

Mario Rodriguez. According to Baudrillard, communication in the modern world is a cold and exhilarating experience akin to that of schizophrenia. This is what makes communication ecstatic — but Baudrillard argued this ecstasy is obscene. In fact, Merrin suggested that Baudrillard is the radical extension of the College of Sociology, which was founded in , and included Mauss, Bataille, and Caillois. Baudrillard began by attempting to describe The System of Objects , that is, the ways in which traditional symbolic objects are transformed into a system of signs with no relation to their original.

Distributed for Semiotext e. Baudrillard's essential crib-book, lexicon, and companion piece to any and all of his books and a prescient portrait of our contemporary condition. First published in France in , The Ecstasy of Communication was Baudrillard's summarization of his work for a postdoctoral degree at the Sorbonne: a dense, poetically crystalline essay that boiled down two decades of radical, provocative theory into an aphoristically eloquent swan song to twentieth-century alienation.
