Promotional Information

An original, brilliant, and important book. The authors clarify the impact, mostly malign, of postmodernism-at least postmodernism in the hands of the second-rate-on the evolving curriculum in higher education. -- Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University

About the Author

Paul R. Gross, former director and president of the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, is University Professor of Life Sciences, Emeritus, at the University of Virginia and a visiting scholar at Harvard University. Norman Levitt is professor of mathematics at Rutgers University and the author of Grassmannians and Gauss Maps in Piecewise-Linear Topology.

Reviews

We should be thankful that Gross and Levitt have provided a wake-up call. Their significant overview of the thinking of those who teach our lawyers, journalists and teachers should be read by all who are concerned by the decline of the status of science in our times. * Physics Today *
At last, somebody has performed the invaluable service of exploding the pretentions of those who think every equation derived this century undermines the fabric of western thought. * New Statesman *
The authors' shredding of such luminaries of postmodernism and feminism as Stanley Aronowitz, Sandra Harding, and Evelyn fox Keller, among others, is not always charitable, [but] it is invariably compelling and frequently devastating. -- Elizabeth Fox-Genovese * Washington Times *
