The Anti-Blog

One consequence of the expansion of the blogosphere is, in accordance with the basic Hegelian scheme, the emergence of the anti-blog. Here is the Anti-Becker-Posner-blog dedicated to smashing, well, you guessed it (and here is an alternative conception of what an anti-blog entails).

O&M has been accused of doing “right-wing craponomics,” Peter’s economics has been attacked by Sraffian Robert Viennau, and my comments about pomo and sociologists have often provoked angry reactions. I wonder when the Anti-O&M-Blog will appear? (Hmm, perhaps we shouldn’t play with fire; remember the Corsair Affair involving Søren Kierkegaard? (Tyler will know what I mean)).

    Don’t forget the two-volume Marxist critique of neoclassical economics published in the 1970s as _Anti-Samuelson_.

    I guess the most famous example is Engels’s _Anti-Dühring_ (though that’s not the actual title).

    Hey, I thought this was the anti-sociology blog!

    I had been thiinking of pointing that post on one of Peter’s posts.

    Anyway, you must be falling down on your right-wingedness. Why else would Marginal Revolution take you out of their blogroll?

    One of the most single-minded anti-blogs is Keith Burgess-Jackson’s ‘Brian Leiter: Academic Thug”

    Tsk-tsk, Brayden. “Anti-sociology”?? By no means; here at O&M we certainly admire James Coleman, Peter Abell, Raymond Boudon, John Goldthorpe, Victor Nee, Diego Gambetta, Michael Hechter, Karl-Dieter Opp, and Siegwardt Lindenberg. All sociologists!
