  5. Planet Word is a new museum about language — it’s opening in Washington, DC this spring
  6. “Why should I as a professional philosopher engage in this activity? Simply put, because I have become a better philosopher by doing it” — Cristina Cammarano (Salisbury University) on teaching philosophy to children
  7. Are “near-death experiences” real? Probably. Are they accurate, though? — John Martin Fischer (UCR) on how to understand and appreciate near-death experiences

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!
