        How is Orphan Black An Illustration of the Simulacrum? | PBS Idea Channel

        How does the portrayal of clones in television and media link back to the philosophical abstract known as a simulacrum? The series "Orphan Black" seems to be a perfect illustration of the simulacrum -- a copy without reference to an original. We see simulacra in pop art, in religion, even Disney World, but does going down this rabbit hole lead us to ourselves? Watch the episode and find out!
