[quote,psychoceramics,math,science] Наносемиотика

Вчера снабдил одного хорошего человека ссылкой на статью в Педивикии про Sokal affair. Если вы про Sokal affair не в курсе, сходите почитайте, стоит того.

Я оригинальную статью Сокала, увы, не читал, но осуждаю. Когда давал ссылку, залез в Педивикию и наткнулся на чудесный отрывок из сокаловских примечаний.

Just as liberal feminists are frequently content with a minimal agenda of legal and social equality for women and ‘pro-choice’, so liberal (and even some socialist) mathematicians are often content to work within the hegemonic Zermelo-Fraenkel framework (which, reflecting its nineteenth-century liberal origins, already incorporates the axiom of equality) supplemented only by the axiom of choice.

Ну и subject выбран не случайно конечно. Ссылок давать не буду.
