DESCRIPTION

When Intellectual Impostures was published in France, it sent shock waves through the Left Bank establishment. When it was published in Britain, it provoked impassioned debate. Sokal and Bricmont examine the canon of French postmodernists - Lacan, Kristeva, Baudrillard, Irigaray, Latour, Virilio, Deleuze and Guattari - and systematically expose their abuse of science. This edition contains a new preface analysing the reactions to the book and answering some of the attacks.

For most people, I imagine the smell of dusty books, or the sound of church bells, or even the gentle scent of marijuana would be enough to conjure up memories of university years. For me, however, it is passages like this that make me smile ... " Intellectual impostures." — That's the name of a book by Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont exposing the, well, intellectual impostures of postmodernists.

By Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. By John von Neumann.
