JEAN BAUDRILLARD.THE ECSTASY OF COMMUNICATION PDF

For Baudrillard, as for the situationists, it was consumption rather than production that was the main driver of capitalist society. Baudrillard argued, drawing from Georges Bataille , that needs are constructed, rather than innate. He stressed that all purchases, because they always signify something socially, have their fetishistic side. Objects always, drawing from Roland Barthes , "say something" about their users. And this was, for him, why consumption was and remains more important than production: because the "ideological genesis of needs" precedes the production of goods to meet those needs.
