The Sokal affair demonstrated that there is a demand for anti-patriarchal logic, the creative chaos theory and the minority-friendly theory of relativity in fashion-conscious progressive circles. However it also bore eloquent witness to what can happen when the rational standards of scientific methods are thrown overboard by giving in to the postmodern striving for pluralism, relativism and unlimited tolerance. Using radical constructivism as an example, Ulf Dettmann shows that naturalistic relativism also does not offer any possibility of getting closer to a more humane and tolerant world with the methods of postmodern theory formation.
