Books by Jean Baudrillard. For new comers to Baudrillard’s philosophy, this is the book I’d recommend.

In his new book, perhaps the most cogent expression of his mature thought, Jean Baudrillard turns detective in order to investigate a crime which he hopes may yet be solved: Well, that is paradise: We put on blinders in order to focus on that which we care about, but sometimes they get in the way and we miss an otherwise clear and present danger.

There are certain contingencies we tend to ignore in life. And, in the end, a powerful call for thinking — forceful thinking, radical thinking, dangerous thinking.

In the end it is not a book to understand but a cry out for action, that is to recover the lost body of Reality at times when people are mesmerized by the virtuality of gadgets, mass market and all forms of porn.

I think Baudrillard deliberately employs the language of a prophet; chances are that some of his prophecies will come true and others will say — see, he said it before Facebook appeared! This is Baudrillard at his most pessimistic and most poetic. Pese a todo es un documento valioso, con algunas ideas sugerentes. Apr 24, Gary rated it really liked it. The Perfect Crime is the investigation of a murdered reality that was always already virtual.

The murder of reality and it’s replacement by hyperreality, perfect because we care not, know not about it. Chris Moran rated it it was amazing May 30, Return to Book Page.
