Baudrillard's first published book, based on his doctoral thesis under the dissertation committee of Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, and Pierre Bourdieu at University of Paris, Nanterre. Characteristic of Baudrillard's early career work on materialist semiotics, The System of Objects amalgamates Freudian and Saussurean categories into a thoroughly Marxist critique of the commodity in consumer society.
