A new Mini-Heap…

  1. 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”
  2. “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)
  3. The 295 most-cited authors in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy — from Eric Schwitzgebel (UC Riverside) with help from his son
  4. “Make friends with people you disagree with” — and plenty of other good advice for new college students from Harry Brighouse (Wisconsin)
  5. “No son of mine is going to be a Benthamite utiltarian. This is a John Stuart Mill family, dammit!” — “And as long as you live under my roof, you’re gonna be following my extremely niche (and extremely specific) perspective on philosophy”
  6. “I much prefer this work to adding to the now painfully overspecialized journal literature in philosophy” — Tom Sorrell (Warwick) on his work as an “embedded ethicist”, in an interview that also covers his writings on Descartes and Hobbes
  7. “College is probably the last time in your life you’ll be around people (your professors) whose job is to make you a more interesting person. Take advantage of that.” — my contribution to a long thread of advice to students starting college

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!
