Mini-Heap


New links in the Heap…

  1. “In her view, democratic debate itself requires us to be a bit hypocritical. It’s less important that we have genuine respect for people with whom we fundamentally disagree than that we act as if we do” — Is Judith Shklar the political philosopher of our times?
  2. The Happiness Museum — visit it next time you’re in Copenhagen
  3. “The argument formed part of a serious anti-sceptical strategy – a strategy that the bare argument, presented by itself, doesn’t really capture” — Jonathan Birch (LSE) on Moore’s hands
  4. “The normatively stubborn person enforces a rule no matter how obviously wrong and counterproductive doing so is in the present circumstances” — we should acknowledge the role of judgment in administering law, and the importance of good judgment, says Steven Nadler (Wisconsin)
  5. “Students generally feel their specific campuses are creating a positive environment for free speech” — yet “sixty percent of students have at one point felt they couldn’t express an opinion on campus because they feared how other students, professors or college administrators would respond”
  6. Disagreement, democracy, and civic friendship — Robert Talisse (Vanderbilt) is interviewed on the Parlia podcast
  7. Masks: for the greatest good — making the best of Bentham

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!
