Simulacra and Simulation

✍️ Jean Baudrillard

In Simulacra and Simulation, you'll throw yourself into the depths of postmodern theory. You'll explore the idea of the simulacrum - a copy without an original - and how this affects our perception of reality. You'll learn that in today's society, the simulation of reality often becomes more important than reality itself. Baudrillard shows you that our culture is so steeped in media, technology, and images that our experiences are often just imitations of imitations. You will be challenged to question the boundaries between reality and fiction and to look anew at the world around you.
