    Intellectual Impostures: Postmodern Philosophers' Abuse of Science.Alan D. Sokal & Jean Bricmont - 1998 - Profile Books.
    When it was published in France, this book shocked the philosophers of the Left Bank with its plain-speaking attack on some of France's greatest minds.

    Chomsky Notebook.Julie Franck & Jean Bricmont (eds.) - 2010 - New York, NY, USA: Columbia University Press.
    Noam Chomsky applies a rational, scientific approach to disciplines as diverse as linguistics, ethics, and politics. His best-known innovations involve a groundbreaking theory of generative grammar, the revolution it initiated in cognitive science, and a radical encounter with political theory and practice. In _Chomsky Notebook_, Cedric Boeckx and Norbert Hornstein tackle the evolution of Chomsky's linguistic theory. Akeel Bilgrami revisits Chomsky's work on freedom and truth, and Pierre Jacob analyzes his naturalism. Chomsky's own contributions include an interview with Jean Bricmont (...)

    From EPR-Schrödinger Paradox to Nonlocality Based on Perfect Correlations.Jean Bricmont, Sheldon Goldstein & Douglas Hemmick - 2022 - Foundations of Physics 52 (3):1-14.
    We give a conceptually simple proof of nonlocality using only the perfect correlations between results of measurements on distant systems discussed by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen—correlations that EPR thought proved the incompleteness of quantum mechanics. Our argument relies on an extension of EPR by Schrödinger. We also briefly discuss nonlocality and “hidden variables” within Bohmian mechanics.

    Postmodernism, Poststructuralism, Etc.Alan Sokal & Jean Bricmont - unknown
    My favorite poststructuralist is Gilles Deleuze (with or without Guattari). I like to think that he was really writing an elaborate series of works of science fiction, in a non-fictional format (much as Stanislaw Lem did in Imaginary Magnitude and A Perfect Vacuum ), only without letting anyone in on the joke. Partly this is because there are moments where what he says is almost right (such as the definition of "relation" he gives in his interview with Claire Parnet, where (...)

  9. The Furor Over Impostures Intellectuelles.Jean Bricmont & Alan Sokal - unknown
    The publication in France of our book Impostures Intellectuelles [1] appears to have created a small storm in certain intellectual circles. According to Jon Henley in The Guardian, we have shown that ``modern French philosophy is a load of old tosh.''[2] According to Robert Maggiori in Libération, we are humourless scientistic pedants who correct grammatical errors in love letters.[3] We shall try to explain here why neither is the case.

    Qu'est-Ce Que le Matérialisme Scientifique ?Jean Bricmont - unknown
    En général, les dogmes matérialistes n’ont pas été édifiés par des gens qui aimaient les dogmes, mais par des gens qui pensaient que rien de moins net ne leur permettrait de combattre les dogmes qu’ils n’aimaient pas. Ils étaient dans la situation de gens qui lèvent des armées pour défendre la paix (1).

  11. The Sleep of Reason.Jean Bricmont - unknown
    You will remember that in 1996 a physicist at New York University named Alan Sokal brought off a delicious hoax that displayed the fraudulence of certain leading figures in cultural studies. He submitted to the journal Social Text an article entitled "Transgressing the boundaries: Toward a transformative hermeneutics of quantum gravity", espousing the fashionable doctrine that scientific objectivity is a myth, and combining heavy technical references to contemporary physics and mathematics with patently ridiculous claims about their broader philosophical, cultural and (...)

  13. Sokal and Bricmont: Is This the Beginning of the End of the Dark Ages in the Humanities?Alan Sokal & Jean Bricmont - unknown
    When I was a boy, I was friendly with a lad who lived a few doors away. We used to take bicycle rides together and have gunfights on the waste land and light fires and play scratch cricket. Our ways parted as our interests evolved in different directions. There were no hard feelings and, indeed, much residual good will. Roger (this is not his true name, which I shall withhold for the sake of his family) did not share any of (...)

    Comment Peut-on Être « Positiviste » ?Jean Bricmont - unknown
    Je voudrais demander au lecteur d’envisager favorablement une doctrine qui peut, je le crains, paraître extrêmement paradoxale et subversive. La doctrine en question est la suivante : il n’est pas désirable de croire en une proposition lorsqu’il n’y a aucune raison..
