Mini-Heap


Friday Mini-Heap…

  1. Philosophy job market mentoring program — at the Philosopher’s Cocoon
  2. The spacey tunnels and Escher-esque stairs at China’s Zhongshuge bookstores — for our “ever-growing post-quarantine travel wish lists” (don’t miss the linked images)
  3. Three ways of diversifying a philosophy syllabus — Muhammad Ali Khalidi (CUNY) goes over the menu of options
  4. How Gödel’s proof works — a “simplified, informal rundown” of Gödel’s argument for his incompleteness theorems
  5. “Cancel culture is one of the ways in which otherwise dispersed and often disorganized individuals can make the more powerful take notice of their views” — Cancel culture “just is the market-place of ideas,” says Eric Schliesser (Amsterdam)
  6. Articles on science and philosophy — curated by Walter Veit (Sydney)
  7. “Scientists typically select well-understood questions and employ well-tried techniques to answer them. Philosophers don’t do that – they get to explore beyond the bounds scientists would venture” — an interview with Zoltán Gendler Szabó (Yale)

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!
