The New Inquisition: Irrational Rationalism and the Citadel of Science by Robert Anton Wilson

| /

Novelist, teacher and former Playboy editor Robert Anton Wilson brilliantly skewers those third rate scientists who try to fob off fourth rate garbage as science. "By New Inquisition I mean… certain habits of repression and intimidation that are becoming increasingly commonplace in the scientific community today. In criticizing what I call Fundamentalist Materialism, I am opposing the Fundamentalism, not the Materialism. This book… is deliberately shocking because I do not want its ideas to seem any less startling than they are."
