Abstract

In catching-up countries, like Russia, the production of knowledge is replaced by the production of the knowledge simulacra: many students pursuing additional education are oriented towards getting diplomas rather than actual knowledge. The development of simulacra production leads towards educational inequality and society`s degradation. An example of this would be the development of the examination system in the medieval countries of Confucian civilization.
