I suppose at some point a critical mass of Posner-critique will build. Some of my favorites include:

Eskridge, The Economics Epidemic in an AIDS Perspective, in The University of Chicago Law Review, Vol. 61, No. 2 (Spring, 1994),

Ian Shapiro, Richard Posner’s Praxis, a chapter in Shapiro’s book The flight from reality in the human sciences.

Most of the commentaries on his Problematics of Moral and Legal Theory (I think published in the Harvard L. Rev., along with the lecture that later became the book).

Jeanne L. Schroeder, Just So Stories: Posnerian Economic Methodology, available at

And the reflections here on whether his book Public Intellectuals is “worthy of being dismissed or being considered an elaborate joke:”

Thanks Frank. I had not seen the "review of the reviews" on Public Intellectuals, which I just briefly read through. My read is that it's more critical of the reviewers than of Posner. Did you have a different sense?
