Sokal I 206
Philosophy/Bergson/Bricmont/Sokal: RussellVsBergson: (B. Russell, Philosophie des Abendlandes, Frankfurt/M. 1950, p. 663f): One of the negative effects of an anti-mind philosophy like Bergson's is that it finds a particularly favourable breeding ground in errors and confused views of intellect. ... Bergson's writings contain numerous references to mathematics and the natural sciences, which in the eyes of an unbiased reader may give particular weight to his philosophy. ... In his interpretation of mathematics, however, he has deliberately given preference to traditional errors over the more modern views that have prevailed among mathematicians in the last eighty years.
