Jean Baudrillard

Jean Baudrillard (1929 – 2007) was invited several times to the Rendez-Vous de l’Imaginaire (The old name for the Invitations à l’Imaginaire).

Eight  years after his death,  Michel Maffesoli, joined by Olivier Penot-Lacassagne (Université Paris III, editor of the collective book Back to Baudrillard) and Aurélien Fouillet (CEAQ), questions the topicality of that perceptive and intuitive thinking.

Jean Baudrillard  took the criticism of consumer society to its ultimate point, and had at times bleak hunches about the great maëlstrom of postmodernity.

Refusing confining disciplinary pigeonholes, more concerned with the adventure of thinking than with institutional legitimacy, he produced a body of work which is commented on by authors as different as Michel  Deguy, Bernard Stiegler, Philippe Petit and many more.
