Mini-Heap


New additions to the Heap of Links…

  1. The Journal of the Philosophy of Emotion has published its first issue — it’s open-access
  2. Most firms have a CEO. How about a CMP? — a call for business to hire “chief moral philosophers”
  3. What’s wrong with “addicts”? — Maggie Taylor (Colorado) on the importance of distinctions between persons and their conditions
  4. Coronavirus on your mind? Or the flu, for that matter? — philosopher Dana Tulodziecki (Purdue) on the origins of hand-washing as a public health measure (via John Brunero)
  5. The moral is political — judgments of moral responsibility are political artifacts, so “we can’t treat moral responsibility as an ‘apolitical’ endeavour,” argues Michelle Ciurria (Missouri, St. Louis)
  6. Newly discovered home audio recordings of Bertrand Russell — “the tapes offer new insights into his life, humour and behind-the-scenes influences” reports the BBC
  7. “While contemporary academics worry about the dearth of women in the history of philosophy, George Eliot’s philosophical accomplishments too often go unacknowledged” — Clare Carlisle (KCL) on why the novelist should be remembered as a philosopher, too

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. Discussion welcome.

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!
