A seminal French text, Debord's Situationist "Society of the Spectacle" draws on mid-century French philosophy and Marxist critical theory to outline the idea of the Spectacle. His theories reflect an inverted image of society caused by the Spectacle, in which relationships among people and between the individual and society have been superseded by the relations between value and commodities that have come to override "genuine activity." Especially relevant in today's virtual environment, this French classic is an originally-oriented position for a lasting problem.
