Here’s the latest Mini-Heap!

  3. “Should we not think that a paper is particularly promising when met with two opposing reviews?”— if we value risk-taking in philosophy, as we should, what institutional implications follow?
  4. A roundtable on empirically-informed approaches to weakness of will — at Brains
  5. Does the prestige of a philosophy PhD program affect how long it takes to get a tenure-track job? — Jonathan Weisberg (Toronto) investigates
  6. A series of posts about philosophy podcasts by the podcasters themselves — at the Blog of the APA
  7. What you think you know about genetics is wrong — genes “cannot possibly serve as instructions for the more complex task of putting the proteins together into a fully functioning being, no more than the characters on a typewriter can produce a story”

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!
