After a quasi-hiatus (quasiatus?) over winter break, the growth of the Heap of Links continues. Here’s the latest Mini-Heap—10 recent items of possible interest to those interested in philosophy, from the Heap. Feel free to discuss. 

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.
