On Rereading a Classic of Skepticism
The most striking part of rereading Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science by Martin Gardner is that the common woo cliche of “THEY laughed at those crackpot ideas yesterday but THEY were shown to be WRONG!” didn't happen. The only crackpot idea mentioned in there that has come even close to being rehabilitated was acupuncture and that was both discussed very briefly then and is still regarded as dubious now.
The second most striking part is that Freud was taken seriously back then. Maybe skepticism isn't always skeptical enough.
