a french philosopher and sociologist. he might be the most pessimistic philosopher i have ever known. i don't know whether there is an organic correlation between theodor adorno and baudrillard, but as i read dialectic of enlightenment, i sensed that baudrillard had been tremendously influenced by adorno.
baudrillard wrote most of his books in 80s and 90s. although the late capitalist world was not as suffocating as today, he managed to portray the negative impacts of the postmodern world in that period. i am so curious how he would feel and think if he lived long enough to see the impact of the social media on the human life.
