The aim of the article is to provide an outline of the conception of science reduced to a cultural spectacle. The essential contexts for the considerations have been the definitions of paradigm given by T.S. Kuhn and Z. Kwiecinski. With reference to them, seven phases of development/transformation of a paradigm will be presented, after which its scientific and mythical references related to technology, various forms and functions of a ritual as well as the process of ritualization will be mentioned. As a result of the information gathered here, we shall come to a conclusion which may suggest that the paradigm of science is a social-cultural spectacle. This, in turn, will allow us to proceed to an example related to education, to the paradigm of education, and explain the difference; expressed in the title of the article; between oppression and grip of education. Finally, the connection between the technology of ritualization, politics and power will be discussed, and information about paradigm will be compiled in points.
