Matthews W. J. (1998) Let’s get real: The fallacy of post-modernism. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 18: 16–32. Fulltext at
The anti-realist nihilism of post-modernist thought provides a constant challenge for science and scientists not only to refute this view but to make clear what constitutes science and the scientific method. In this article, I review the major arguments of post-modern thought and its criticism of science and then provide a point by point refutation. The Popperian notion of refutability and empiricality provide the cornerstone of this discussion.
