Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals' Abuse of Science (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Sokal has performed a valuable service to the cause of rational thought. While far from exhaustive in discussing each of his targets, he provides enough information to allow readers to judge for themselves. He does exactly what he promises, not to analyze the philosophical ideas but rather to assess the competence of assorted thinkers to draw upon scientific thought in their work. The querulous disciples of the thinkers he targets are too cowardly and dishonest to seriously engage with the issues raised. Look at some of the other reader comments to get an idea of how freely people merely change the subject rather than confront the grotesque failings of a variety of "postmodern" pseudo-intellectuals to understand the terms and ideas they casually trash. Every thinking person should read this book!!!
