Imitation and plagiarism as a threat to academic freedom
In recent years one can observe in Europe, including Ukraine, the ousting of research strategies of the humanities by those of the will to power, struggle for the signs of prestige, depreciation of self-sufficiency of the scientific searching. Parascience, plagiarism, deficit of novel methodologies in our territory, threatening simulacra and fictions in science lead to reduction of the essence of scientific knowledge to nothing and, finally, to devaluation of fundamental values of civil society.
