Description

'In a sense, we do not believe in the Year 2000', says French thinker Jean Baudrillard. Baudrillard's analysis of 'Y2K' reveals a repentant culture intent on storing, mourning and laundering its past, and a world from which even the possibility of the 'end of history' has vanished. The millennium might not take place. Yet behind this bleak vision of integrated reality, Baudrillard identifies enigmatic possibilities and perhaps a final ironic twist. Baudrillard and the Millennium confronts the strategies of this strange encounter with the greatest non event of the postmodern age, and accounts for the critical censure of Baudrillard's enterprise. Natural catastrophes, the body, 'victim culture', identity and Internet viruses, are all discussed in reference to the development of Jean Baudrillard's millenarian thought from the 1980s to the threshold of the Year 2000 from simulation to disappearance.
