- An interview with “The Philosophical Investigator” — Todd Altschuler is the guest on Peter Limberg’s “Intellectual Explorers Club” podcast

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!
