Episode 12: Bill Explains Jean Baudrillard
OK, peoples. It has come to my
attention that many of you are not well versed in the writings of Jean Baudrillard,
the French post-modern philosopher. Well, I once read a website about him,
so I am highly qualified to talk about this subject.
First, his name is pronounced
"boh-dre-yar." Any other pronunciation makes you look like a stupid
American. The French hate stupid Americans.
Secondly, Baudrillard believes
that we define and interpret our reality through various electronic media,
thus creating a form of meta-reality, and thereby eliminating reality altogether.
Reality is no more!
Let me guess. You learned this
so you can pick up philosophy majors at parties.
Well, it works better than reciting the quadratic formula.
I KNOW THIS FROM EXPERIENCE.
