Absolutna horyzontalność - wyobraźnia topograficzna i dyskurs krytyczny w "Ameryce" Jeana Baudrillarda

Katarzyna Szalewska

Abstract

The article is an attempt to reconstruct the topographic imagination of Jean Baudrillard. The author interprets his essay, "America", placing him in the context of "Visions from San Francisco Bay" by Czesław Miłosz. Reading America through a spatial perspective allows us not only to see the spatial imagery used to describe the landscape of the New World but also to indicate its hidden symbolism. In other words, through topographical imagery, Baudrillard verbalizes judgments about culture and history. Thus, space becomes an epistemological metaphor and the author’s own philosophical dictionary.
