Also reminds me of the Sokal Affaire, where where Professor Alan Sokal, a physicist at New York University, submitted a deliberately pseudoscientific paper for publication in a postmodern cultural studies journal. The paper, "Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity", published in the Spring/Summer 1996 issue of Social Text, was submitted to see if a humanities journal would (in Sokal's words) "publish an article liberally salted with nonsense if (a) it sounded good and (b) it flattered the editors' ideological preconceptions."

In the same vein, also see the Postmodernism Generator (reload to get a new paper).
