In this his most accessible and evocative book France s leading philosopher of postmodernism takes to the freeways in a collection of traveler s tales from the land of hyperreality, This is the first English language translation of Jean Baudrillard s contemporary classic on the sociology of consumption Originally published in the book was one of the first to focus on the processes and meaning of consumption in contemporary culture At a time when others were fixated with the production process Baudrillard could be found making the case that consumption is now the axis of culture He demonstrates how consumption is related to the goal of economic growth and he maps out a social theory of consumption Many of the themes that would later make Baudrillard famous are sketched out here for the first time In particular concepts of simulation and the simulacrum receive their earliest systematic treatment br br Written at a time when Baudrillard was moving away from both Marxism and institutional sociology the book is more systematic than his later works He is still pursuing the task of locating consumption in culture and society So the reader will find here his most organized discussion of mass media culture the meaning of leisure and anomie in affluent society There is also a fascinating chapter on the body which shows yet again Baudrillard s extraordinary prescience in flagging the importance of vital subjects in contemporary culture long before his colleagues br br Baudrillard is widely acclaimed as a key thinker in sociology communication and cultural studies This book makes available to English speaking readers one of his most important works It will be devoured by the steadily expanding circle of Baudrillard scholars and it will also be required reading for students of the sociology of culture communication and cultural studies br br This edition is published with a long specially prepared introductory essay written by the noted cultural commentator and social theorist George Ritzer author of The McDonaldization of Society, i The System of Objects i is a tour de force a theoretical letter in a bottle tossed into the ocean in which brilliantly communicates to us all the live ideas of the day br br Pressing Freudian and Saussurean categories into the service of a basically Marxist perspective i The System of Objects i offers a cultural critique of the commodity in consumer society Baudrillard classifies the everyday objects of the new technical order as functional nonfunctional and metafunctional He contrasts modern and traditional functional objects subjecting home furnishing and interior design to a celebrated semiological analysis His treatment of nonfunctional or marginal objects focuses on antiques and the psychology of collecting while the metafunctional category extends to the useless the aberrant and even the schizofunctional Finally Baudrillard deals at length with the implications of credit and advertising for the commodification of everyday life br br i The System of Objects i is a tour de force of the materialist semiotics of the early Baudrillard who emerges in retrospect as something of a lightning rod for all the live ideas of the day Bataille s political economy of expenditure and Mauss s theory of the gift Reisman s lonely crowd and the technological society of Jacques Ellul the structuralism of Roland Barthes in i The System of Fashion i Henri Lefebvre s work on the social construction of space and last but not least Guy Debord s situationist critique of the spectacle, In this his most important collection of essays since i Le systeme des objets i Jean Baudrillard contemplates Western culture after the orgy the orgy that is of the revolutions of the s The sexual revolution has led he argues not to sexual liberation but to a reign of transvestism to a confusion of the categories of man and woman to the androgenous and Frankenstein appeal of a Michael Jackson The revolution in art has led to a transaesthetic realm of indifference The cybernetic revolution has blurred the distinction between man and machine while the political revolution has led to a transpolitics that merely simulates old political forms Such are the points of Baudrillard s compass as he steers his way through the mental landscape of this febrile i fin de siecle i
