Passwords, Jean Baudrillard (2003)

22622

Second short Baudrillard book in a row. “Passwords” is comprised of 12 brief chapters each one devoted to discussion of the “keywords” in Baudrillard’s philosophical oeuvre. I don’t recommend starting here to gain worthwhile exposure to his work. I did not take much away from this except to wonder if “Passwords” is a tributary reference to Raymond Williams’s classic “Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society.”(1975). I think I will have a look at Williams in near term.
