Sokal I 193
Science/Virilio/Bricmont/Sokal/SokalVsVirilio: although Virilio's sentences make more sense than Deleuze/Guattari's, what is presented as "science" is a mixture of stupendous confusion and wild fantasies. We confess our sympathy for many of Virilio's political and social beliefs, but his pseudophysics unfortunately do not serve the cause. (Cf. P. Virilio Fluchtgeschwindigkeit, Munich 1996; see Terminology/Virilio, Space/Virilio, Physics/Virilio.)
