From Jacques Lacan and Julia Kristeva to Luce Irigaray and Jean Baudrillard, the authors document the errors made by some postmodernists using science to bolster their arguments and theories.

Random walks, critical phenomena, and triviality in quantum field theory by Roberto Fernández ( Book )
9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The subject of this book is equilibrium statistical mechanics, in particular the theory of critical phenomena, and quantum field theory. The central theme is the use of random-walk representations as a tool to derive correlation inequalities. The consequences of these inequalities for critical-exponent theory and the triviality question in quantum field theory are expounded in detail. The book contains some previously unpublished results. It addresses both the researcher and the graduate student in modern statistical mechanics and quantum field theory
