Skeptical Quarterly

The year's fourth issue of the skeptic quarterly I co-edit, Folkvett, reached subscribers today. The contents (92 pp.) are entirely in Swedish, as follows.
  • Ledare: Skall vi bara kritisera pseudovetenskap?
  • Kimmo Eriksson: Matematikmissbruk
  • Göran Grimvall: Förenkla -- men inte för mycket
  • Martin Peterson: Den nya vetenskapen i Luleå
  • Thors Hans Hansson: Ledande parapsykolog om kvantfysik (recension av Entangled Minds av Dean Radin)
  • Sven Ove Hansson: Test av ett svenskt medium
  • Birgitta Forsman & Dan Larhammar: Förtydligande om oredlighetsutredningar
  • Sven Ove Hansson: Politiskt förvriden vetenskap (recension av The Republican War on Science av Chris Mooney)
  • Olle Häggström: Duger det att stå utanför och se in?
  • Notiser
It's a really good issue. Too bad I've already read it in copy-editing.

Folkvett, like the entire skeptic movement, does suffer from a bad gender imbalance, though. Female skeptics, please send me manuscripts for the journal!

I hate that. I proofread the latest issue of "Humanisten" and now I can barely open it. I know there's some good stuff in there but I just can't bring myself to read it again...

That's how rational we really are. We get to read everything months in advance, and then we whine because there's nothing new in the mag. (-;
