Happy Friday! Here’s the latest Mini-Heap.

  1. Martha Nussbaum on her work, Mozart as a philosopher, and what she plans to do with the $1 million Berggruen Prize — an interview in The New Statesman
  2. Can we separate the art from the artist? — several philosophers contribute to the latest “Artworld Roundtable” at Aesthetics for Birds
  3. A new Facebook group focused on the teaching of philosophy — professors and graduate students who teach philosophy can ask to join
  4. “A couple of old blokes dominating a dinner party with old insider jokes” — Martin Lenz (Groningen) discusses problems with allusions in scholarly writing
  5. “The philosophical profession runs on institutional logic rather than philosophical logic” — a collection of responses to Bryan Van Norden’s “Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto” (quote from David Seltzer’s piece)
  6. Each month, a different philosopher writes about a different piece of correspondence from David Lewis — it’s part of the “Age of Metaphysical Revolution” project
  7. A new blog by a philosophy graduate student is a place “for fellow graduate students to relate, commiserate, and enjoy” — “PhDoing Life”

Mini-Heap posts appear when about 7 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.

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!
