    A site of interest to aficionados of the history and philosophy of science, or or hoaxes, or of self-righteousness (in long supply here, and on all sides), is Alan Sokal's. A professor of physics at NYU, Sokal is best known for his hoax of postmodern theories about science in Social Text. Here he gathers what he gauges to be the relevant articles, including not only his own but also some of the reactions to his article.
