Paul Gross eviscerates David Berlinksi's latest book. I have to say, of all the writers on the Discovery Institute's payroll, Berlinski to my mind is the most depressing. His Tour of the Calculus was a wonderful book. Since then, it is as though he was replaced by some horrible simulacrum. He must truly believe his readers and fans (at Commentary and other conservative magazines) are so stupid that none will make the effort to fact-check his assertions.
