This is a look at Baudrillard's thought from a theological perspective. Jean Baudrillard was one of the foremost intellectual figures of the late twentieth century and his work is currently reaching a new prominence in the English-speaking world. Unlike other subjects of this series, Baudrillard's work is not directly addressed to theological concerns, espousing a post-Nietschean nihilism. However, his provocative analysis of the changing nature of reality, subjectivity and agency is of increasing importance to contemporary theology. Furthermore, his mode of cultural analysis (which he himself describes as "mystical") provides fruitful possibilities for theological reasoning in the post-idealist world he describes. Jim Walters provides the context of Baudrillard's writing and identifies key influences. He then sets out his core ideas, drawing in theological responses and relating them to theological concerns. Finally, he highlights some areas of his work of particular theological interest. "The Philosophy and Theology" series looks at major philosophers and explores their relevance to theological thought as well as the response of theology.
