For those who like to listen to podcasts and books, our justifiably much-adored Greta Christina reports that the audio version of her book, in her own voice, is now available. And she includes this little blurb that makes me incredibly jealous:
“Greta Christina’s analysis of religion is acute and witty, and at the same time fair and compassionate. And I’m jealous: I sure wish I could write as well as she does.”
-Alan Sokal, Professor of Physics, New York University
Oh man, to get a blurb from Sokal is way too cool. Sokal is responsible for one of the great hoaxes of my lifetime when he showed the total vacuity of postmodern subjectivism by submitting nothing but a word salad for publication to the journal Social Text and it was accepted.
