Jean Baudrillard

In the same way that we need statesmen to spare us the abjection of exercising power, we need scholars to spare us the abjection of learning.More Jean Baudrillard quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Neither dead nor alive, the hostage is suspended by an incalculable outcome. It is not his destiny that awaits for him, nor his own death, but anonymous chance, which can only seem to him something absolutely arbitrary. He is in a state of radical emergency, of virtual extermination.More Jean Baudrillard quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not enough for theory to describe and analyze, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.More Jean Baudrillard quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The skylines lit up at dead of night, the air-conditioning systems cooling empty hotels in the desert and artificial light in the middle of the day all have something both demented and admirable about them. The mindless luxury of a rich civilization, and yet of a civilization perhaps as scared to see the lights go out as was the hunter in his primitive night.More Jean Baudrillard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or dispatched as microfilm into the sidereal void.More Jean Baudrillard quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
