Second Mini-Heap of the day…

  1. “It requires an unsettling, introspective honesty about what moves and motivates me” — Amy Olberding (Oklahoma) on one’s own incivility
  2. The true origins of famous philosophical ideas — (EC)
  3. Colin McGinn launches consulting firm handling matters “from workplace ethics to catastrophe avoidance” — I’m assured this is not a joke. Do check out the list of advisors.
  4. “Cute is one – perhaps very trivial, very tentative – way of exploring whether and how the paradigm of power can be exited” — Simon May (KCL) on cuteness
  5. “The hidden nature of imagery (and qualia more generally) explains why a significant minority of humans are shocked and dismayed when they learn that other people are capable of generating visual [mental] images” — a discussion of aphantasia, with multiple links
  6. How two ideas from Chinese philosophy are relevant to leadership in philosophy — Helen De Cruz (Oxford Brookes) on cultivating propriety and instituting proper structures
  7. A rather stunning optical illusion — with a helpful animation

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!
