Selectively Forgetting Baudrillard: Rescuing Praxis from the Wreckage

Selectively Forgetting Baudrillard: Rescuing Praxis from the Wreckage

Ratings: (0)|Views: 119 |Likes:
I argue that Jean Baudrillard’s post-1970s work makes numerous wrong turns from the point of view of a philosophy of praxis. While Baudrillard’s work is indispensable for the evolution of a critical theory of capitalism and its culture, his attack on the viability of political projects and normative philosophy must be refuted. I argue for a theory that retains a commitment to counteracting tendencies toward acquiescence and reconciliation— for theory in the service of rethinking revolution.
