A new Mini-Heap…
- Independent scholar finds new John Locke manuscript — the article contains a link to a digital reproduction of the hand-written “Reasons for tolerateing Papists equally with others”
- “From the standpoint of a political analysis of sexual politics, basing morality in nature is contrary to everything feminism has achieved” — an interview with Catharine MacKinnon (Michigan)

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!
