This third volume in the "Cool Memories" set of books is culled from Jean Baudrillard's notebooks in the period when he was composing "The Illusion of the End" and "The Perfect Crime". In it, he resumes his investigation of the meta-metaphysics of objects. As with its predecessors, the book is a work of brief meditations, of poetic musings: of fragments. Jean Baudrillard is the author of "The Transparency of Evil", The System of Objects" and "America".
Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) began teaching sociology at the Universite de Paris-X in 1966. He retired from academia in 1987 to write books and travel until his death in 2007. His many works include "Simulations and Simulacra," "America," "The Perfect Crime," "The System of Objects," "Passwords," "The Transparency of Evil," "The Spirit of Terrorism," and "Fragments," among others.
