Subjects and Simulations : Between Baudrillard and Lacoue-Labarthe, Hardback Book

Subjects and Simulations : Between Baudrillard and Lacoue-Labarthe Hardback

Edited by Anne E. O'Byrne, Hugh J. Silverman


Subjects and Simulations presents essays focused on suffering and sublimity, representation and subjectivity, and the relation of truth and appearance in the twenty-first century.

Inspired by the work of Jean Baudrillard, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe and JeanLuc Nancy, sixteen authors study how the real reasserts itself in an age of every more fragmented media, and how art and literature give us access to forms of truth that elude philosophy.

How does representation grant us access to the place once occupied by the subject?

Is political life possible? Can plural thinking be retrieved? Will metaphor and simulation give us ways of being in an evanescent world?

The volume engages discussions of French and Continental philosophy, post-structuralism, deconstruction, simulacra, aesthetics, existentialism, and media theory.
