Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Reality, philosophy: it is controversial, which should be counted to reality, that is to say, the set of objects and states which occur in the world. Theories partially differ strongly regarding the definitions of facts and situations or the consideration of internal states of subjects. Thus, a situation can be described in many ways, whereby very different assumptions about the involved objects and relations come into play. See also ontology, realism, recognition, epistemology, constructivism, fact, situations, internal/external, totality, relations, simulation.

Reality/Baudrillard's thesis: Diagnosis of the disappearance of the real in favor of simulation and hyperreality.
Blask I 31
Definition Hyper-reality/Baudrillard: first the model exists, or models endlessly circling in themselves and then the events! There is no manipulator! As if war were only a test for whether there can still be wars. E.g. Movie »Company Capricorn«: NASA is staging a manned Mars expedition in the studio for technical reasons.
