Jean Baudrillard on Simulacrum - Dictionary of Arguments

Blask I 26
Simulacra = are artificial worlds of signs.

Baudrillard: Order of the Simulacra:
1st order: (Renaissance) Imitation, pretense, automat
2nd order: (industrial revolution) production/reproduction, robot
3rd order: (Present) There is random permutation. Negation is integrated. There is total relativity. There is no choice. All answers are already there.
Blask I 29
Definition Simulation/Baudrillard: simulation is that irresistible process, in which things are linked together as if they had a meaning. It eliminates the principle of truth and thus the semantic equivalence between the signifier and the signified.
