The Sokal Affair, 18 years later
The paper presents retrospectively the Sokal Affair, one of the most wide-ranging academic scandals of the late 20th century. Special attention is drawn to three questions which were in the focus of the follow up discussions: Why did Sokal take such an unusual step? What the Sokal case does and does not prove? Was Sokal's behavior unethical?
