Mini-Heap


New Mini-Heap…

  1. “Life is just one specific instance of lyfe” — NASA engineers a new concept, “lyfe”, intended to capture life as we know it on earth but also life as we may not know it (via Dan Weiskopf)
  2. “The book is like a road map through the intricacies of disappointment” — this year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Albert O. Hirschman’s Exit, Voice, and Loyalty
  3. Is X-phi’s depiction of non-experimental philosophy a caricature? — Tomasz Herok (Lancaster) thinks so
  4. “The barriers to speech are not just about the threat from the state but also about the social atmosphere in which speech is conducted and about who has the standing to speak” — Chris Bertram (Bristol) on “cancel culture”
  5. Charcoal portraits of philosophers — from Paula Pereira, a librarian in California
  6. The chemistry and ethics of love drugs — a discussion from Brian D. Earp and Julian Savulescu (Oxford)
  7. “The Last Days of Immanuel Kant” is a 1996 movie now streamable on YouTube — “It follows the famously abstemious and abstruse philosopher as he’s anticipating his death, yet it’s a physical comedy filled with neo-slapstick intimacy”

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!
