A new mini-heap:

  1. The origin of Peter Singer’s Instagram account — a student asked herself, “what’s the most good I can do?” (The New Yorker)
  2. The campaign to raise awareness about Lady Mary Shepherd — one of Scotland’s earliest female philosophers
  3. Curved Spacetimes: where Friedrich Nietzsche meets Virginia Woolf — an upcoming performance by philosopher Barbara Gail Montero and the Logos Dance Collective
  4. “Into the Coast” is a site of video interviews with philosophers — 10 so far (the site’s name comes from Gareth Evans’ metaphor for the rare times in which philosophy comes easy: “like riding a surf into the coast”)
  5. Philosophy professor by day and bassist by night — a brief article on philosopher Marc Bobro (City College, Santa Barbara) and his punk band, Crying 4 Kafka
  6. How to write better when you’re working in the more formal parts of philosophy — advice from Richard Pettigrew (Bristol)
  7. Philosopher wins defamation lawsuit — against someone on Twitter who accused him of being a pedophile

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.

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!
