From the NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/04/arts/academic-journals-hoax.html Of course the NYT has to include the mandatory "other side", basically people who think it's mean to expose pseudo-science such as gender studies as pseudo-science. Also of course the authors of the "hoax", much like Sokal 20 years ago, have to at least claim to be "from the left" to have any chance to be heard in the left-wing echo chamber that are social studies in the US. Discuss. What do you think of the ridiculously low standards of social studies papers in the US? What do you think of the growing importance given to fields that are obviously pseudo-science and in which any garbage can be published in peer-reviewed magazines, as there is no objective standard of truth whatsoever in these fields? Final point of discussion: due to our situatedness as humans, rather than as a dogs,can we properly determine when an incidence of dog humping qualifies as rape?
