…in which we cast doubt on the idea Joseph Stalin was a linguist…
A piece over at the Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective that is not likely to make me many friends in a certain part of the French Academy:
I was even more surprised by the incoherence of the piece in question, in part because of internal contradictions in their own arguments, but also because they mischaracterised my own work (and not for the first time). If I was a suspicious person I would have put this down to malice. Yet not being suspicious I also cannot fathom how serious academics as themselves would fail to check their own work before committing it to publication.
…in which we condemn the Holocaust and Nazism in general.
…in which the Vatican is lax when it comes to keeping corpses in graves!
