A new Mini-Heap…

  1. Are philosophers underestimating the epistemic usefulness of imagination? — Madeleine Hyde (Stockholm) provides some reasons to think so
  2. “I place a lot of good things under the heading ‘irrationality'” — Justin E. H. Smith (University of Paris, Diderot) is interviewed at Vox about “the dark side of reason”
  3. One problem may be that “the two sides are talking past each other” — a response to a recent criticism of the gender-critical view, by Sophie Allen (Keele)
  4. Mapping disagreement over freedom of speech — Martin Lenz (Groningen) explores what we can learn by distinguishing two conceptions of what speech is
  5. Teaching a philosophy course on the future — Leigh Johnson (Christian Bros. Univ.) provides a helpful guide on why to do it and what to assign
  6. Not from The Onion: Professor who sexually harassed a student will teach course on how “boundaries… limit the possibility of experience” — Avital Ronell (NYU) will be back in the classroom this Fall
  7. “I’m lucky to have gotten a tenure-track job, but… I’m still not sure it was worth it, all things considered” — thoughts on what it takes to finally “succeed” in the philosophy job market, from Marcus Arvan (Tampa)

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!
