A Conversation for The Sokal Affair
clzoomer- a bit woobly Started conversation Jul 8, 2004
I long ago dismissed the very name *Post Modern* for the two reasons; It's very title laden with heavy and undeserved drama, plus the antididactic and inappropriate adjective laden nature of it's output. (Not merely the scientific ones!)
Thank you from a non professional bystander who long ago believed that an enormous percentage of the professional output was out and out male bovine excrement. Or should I say the bodily waste discharged through the anus of an animal that produces small usually motile gametes (as spermatozoa or spermatozoids) which fertilize the eggs of a female, specifically a non-female who is generally refered to as an adult uncastrated animal of the bovine family. Well wait a minute......that actually makes sense. My hoped for career in science is obviously a pipe dream.
