I am baffled by the manner in which postmodernism arouses such prejudice in scholars. Martin Hammersley's comments (Letters, THES , April 5) on my letter ( THES , March 29) are a case in point. I noted that so-called postmodern scholars would be "profoundly concerned" about creationism. This hardly seems to indicate that they would be happy having creationism in schools.
