“Baudrillard’s writing is open to several criticisms. He fails to
define key terms, such as the code; his writing style is hyperbolic
and declarative, often lacking sustained, systematic analysis when it
is appropriate; he totalizes his insights, refusing to qualify or
delimit his claims. He writes about particular experiences, television
images, as if nothing else in society mattered, extrapolating a bleak
view of the world from that limited base. He ignores contradictory
evidence.”
