Sokal Karma

Many in the hard sciences hold Sokal’s farce far too seriously, as undermining the scholarship of cultural theorists. I think there is a point to taking some of the air out of the sometimes very badly written academic work in cultural studies, but I have always argued that all academic fields could be similarly punctured. They exist upon a certain degree of shared trust.

I wonder if this description of a similar ruse being played on the physics community is real or a “faked fake”?
