Virilio is still, after all these years, the closest theorist to Jean Baudrillard, personally and politically, symbolised in all sorts of connections In the late s Jean Baudrillard was in many ways in the right place at the right time.
In the early s he had published some literary reviews for Les Temps Modernes , the journal founded by Jean-Paul Sartre. There were also many translations which Baudrillard conducted in this period, from German into French, mainly of key figures like Karl Marx and Bertolt Brecht.
He then studied for a PhD in sociology. Working under the tutelage of Henri The book, read as a whole, categorically gives the lie to such allegations. In the reception of much of his work Baudrillard has been interpreted as explicitly anti-feminist and this work certainly added fuel to the fire.

There were two sequels The Matrix : Reloaded and The Matrix : Revolutions in by which time Baudrillard had given interviews rejecting the film as misunderstanding his notion of simulation and the real. The genesis of the book is a strange story. In the French photographer Sophie Calle had invited twenty-eight friends, neighbours and strangers to sleep in her bed one after the other for a week while she photographed them and wrote notes.

Or did it? For instance, Christopher Norris saw Baudrillard as a postmodernist intellectual whose work, especially on the Gulf War, should be shunned and pilloried The s was a decade which Baudrillard had already advised us, in the s, we should miss out while we went straight to the end of the century.
The first one which appeared in French, translated into English, is the extract here. By the end of the century Baudrillard had started to produce a familiar aphoristic, poetic writing style across the board, not just in his Cool Memories diaries.

The debate included, among others, Baudrillard had written controversially about the first Gulf War in the early s. In when the news of US military torture in Iraq broke his views on the scandalous images of Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, originally published in French, were eagerly awaited. In late the outlying estates of Paris, and twenty other towns and cities, were burning. The suburbs were rising that November and global media attention was rife.
Youths rioted and set cars and property alight for many consecutive nights. Government dithered and politicians, especially on the right, ranted.

SIMULACRA, SIMULATION AND THE MATRIX
The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth--it is the truth which conceals that there is none. If we were able to take as the finest allegory of simulation the Borges tale where the cartographers of the Empire draw up a map so detailed that it ends up exactly covering the territory but where, with the decline of the Empire this map becomes frayed and finally ruined, a few shreds still discernible in the deserts - the metaphysical beauty of this ruined abstraction, bearing witness to an imperial pride and rotting like a carcass, returning to the substance of the soil, rather as an aging double ends up being confused with the real thing , this fable would then have come full circle for us, and now has nothing but the discrete charm of second-order simulacra. Abstraction today is no longer that of the map, the double, the mirror or the concept.
