Mini-Heap


Here’s the latest Mini-Heap.

  1. Academics and activists object to Peter Singer’s upcoming appearance at Halifax — what does the fact that Singer’s talks and protests of them have been happening for 20+ years tell us about free speech on campus?
  2. “I’m hostile to the pursuit of originality in legal philosophy—and also in most other areas of philosophy” — an interview with Les Green (Oxford) on a variety of topics in and related to law
  3. “Democratic governance requires the mediation of public emotion to promote the flourishing of political and social life” — Danny Li (UCL) takes a look at the response to the Christchurch shooting through the lens of Martha Nussbaum’s work on anger
  4. Police stings and possible worlds — philosophical problems related to entrapment and undercover investigations, from FBI-agent-turned-philosopher Luke Hunt (Radford)
  5. The college admissions scandal, meritocracy, and equal opportunity — thoughts from Thomas Mulligan (Georgetown)
  6. The new president of the University of Dallas is a philosopher — Thomas Hibbs is moving from his position as Dean of the Honors College at Baylor back to his alma mater
  7. “Direct, unaffected, uncompromising and perhaps a little severe, but…” — John Schwenkler (FSU) on Anscombe on the centenary of her birth

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!
