  2. The rectangles are indeed lined up and moving at the same speed — a new optical illusion (via Gregg Caruso)
  3. When humans are quiet and stay put — what happens to the rest of the world?
  4. A new site website is publishing English translations of Deleuze’s seminar lectures at the University of Paris between 1971 and 1987 — among other things, it is crowdsourcing recordings of the lectures (via Will Anderson)
  5. “We should resist the widespread view that political theory always has to be… addressing practical problems and giving us guidance about what to do” — a video interview with David Estlund (Brown)
  6. “What does his fall from such exalted heights tell us about the sorts of intellects that do—and do not—shine brightly for posterity?” — Ray Monk (Southampton) on G.E. Moore

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!
