Explanation of Pierre Desproges’ vision in La rigueur scientifique

On the occasion of an article, Pierre Desproges makes fun of the scientific protocol.

Throughout this article, Pierre Desproges handles the absurdity and the nonsense“the Nantaise is biodegradable” while trying to keep a logical form“that proves to the evidence that“.

Numerous other winks, no less grating, pepper the extract:“a funnel that we will call Catherine, in homage to Catherine de Medici” in reference to the absurd names given by the scientists

He thus manages to demonstrate everything, by anything.“as long as you are completely crazy“.
