Beyond The Sokal Hoax

If you have missed the landmark event of the mid 90's that shook up Academia, you should do yourself a favor an either get one of the books that Alan Sokal has authored, check this webpage, or get this book that is being reviewed.

This is a book review done by none other than Phil Anderson on Sokal's latest book that goes beyond the hoax. It still includes the infamous article with lots of notations. And Phil Anderson certainly did not back off from his own opinion about the issue at hand (the battle of science and postmodernism). And from the last paragraph, it certainly appears that this is still an ongoing battle.
