Baudrillard is merely a simulacrum

On Tuesday the philosopher Jean Baudrillard died at the age of 77. He was one of the leading media theorists. He described simulacra as a copy of a copy which has been so dissipated in its relation to the original that it can no longer be said to be a copy.

This article in the Welt lists some of his contributions and stresses Baudrillard's coolness.

Although heavily criticised the world is missing outstanding theorists of media entities.
