He studied philosophy at University of Grenoble, and participated in the student uprising in Paris to change the French educational model. However he criticizes the model that came from that as producing alienated individuals with fragile personalities prone to emotional disorder due to hedonism and immediate gratification.

With the success of his first book, he has become well known in many parts of the world and has become one of the most important French intellectuals of the latter 20th century. His has divided this time period into three periods: "Marxist self criticism" , post- modern and the hyper modern period from on.

This began with his book, which declared the world to be post-modern, characterized by extreme individualism and the dissolution of politics based on political parties, turning its back on a strong sense of social duty on which democracy and socialism depend. However, by the end of the s, he proposed that this term had become obsolete and unable to describe the world past He then proposed "hyper-modern," similar to post-modern but with a superlative and unstoppable meaning, focusing on new technologies, markets, and global culture.

It also indicates the desire to be young forever and that only the here-and-now exists. Le bonheur paradoxal. He has compared fashion with democracy as unstable, ephemeral and superficial, but states it as a positive and more workable then a more interdependent society.

He believes that consumption should be a means to an end, not an end in itself and believes that concerns such as ecology are not incompatible with capitalism. His methodology varies as well, and often deals in paradoxes. His approach to issues is almost nonexistent epistemologically.

There is also strong influence in his writing from French literature although he does not write fiction.

He sees the sophistication of modern advertising: he is alive to the social possibilities of our cultural transformation And because he embraces, rather than merely dismisses, the new age, he understands it better. His thesis is fundamentally the following: if it is clear that fashion is a mix of conformity and of individual choice, its very emergence as a historical phenomenon manifests a global and typically Western logic, that of the break with tradition.
