Mini-Heap


A new batch of links of possible interest to those interested in philosophy: it’s the Mini-Heap.

  1. Book XI is a new journal of literary philosophy — it’s “dedicated to publishing personal essays, memoir, fiction, science fiction, humor, and poetry with philosophical themes” and its first issue just came out
  2. Should you apply to graduate school in philosophy, and if so, where? “Warning: This might be depressing!” — advice from Eric Schwitzgebel (UC Riverside)
  3. “Academic freedom does not exempt philosophers and other academics from the duty to treat their colleagues and students with dignity and respect” — Chris Bertram (Bristol) on a recent letter some philosophers and others sent to The Times complaining about trans-inclusive policies at UK universities
  4. Why is a crater on the moon named after Anaxagoras? — the story involves his arrest, trial, and being sentenced to death
  5. Wabash College adds “Philosophy, Politics, and Economics” to its list of majors — and an endowed professorship to lead the program
  6. Understanding and assessing China’s “social credit” system — an online symposium
  7. “They were some of the most intelligent, kind and real people I have interacted with” — students at the University of Texas San Antonio took part in a “Philosophy and Literature Circle” with inmates at a local prison this past semester

Mini-Heap posts appear when 7 or so new items accumulate in the Heap of Links, the ever-growing collection of items from around the web that may be of interest to philosophers.

The Heap of Links consists partly of suggestions from readers; if you find something online that you think would be of interest to the philosophical community, please send it in for consideration for the Heap. Thanks!
