Friday Mini-Heap…

  1. The “age effects” in who is most cited in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy — Eric Schwitzgebel (Riverside) explains with “The Winnowing of Greats” and “The Baby Boom Philosophy Bust”
  2. “Human research ethics has received guidance from The Belmont Report principles… since the late 1970s. Animal research ethics needs a comparably robust touchstone” — David DeGrazia (GW) and Tom Beauchamp (Georgetown) offer one (via What’s Wrong)
  3. Achieving work-life balance in philosophy — advice from Jason Brennan (Georgetown)
  4. Does “do us a favor” imply a quid pro quo? — It might depend on what Trump intended, and so Brian Robinson (Texas A&M-Kingsville) tries to figure that out
  5. Using social network and semantic network analyses to check the accuracy of reference materials on early modern philosophy — from an interdisciplinary team of researchers
  6. What makes for a great critic? — philosophy of criticism from Antonia Peacocke (Stanford)
  7. On being a philosopher from a working-class background — a new series of posts at The Philosophers’ Cocoon begins with one by Adriel Trott (Wabash)

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!
