Baudrillard: Simulacra and Simulations

from Jean Baudrillard, Selected Writings, ed. Mark Poster (Stanford; Stanford University Press, 1988), pp.166-184. The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth--it is the truth which conceals that there is none. The simulacrum is true. (This essay is relevant to the question of what is truth, when there are multiple competing simulacra, none completely true)
