Friday Mini-Heap…

  1. The variety of philosophical issues involved in, and related to, legal personhood — an interview with Visa Kurki (Helsinki)
  2. A multi-platform media project featuring a woman “armed with puppets and dressed as Hannah Arendt” — it includes interviews with Noam Chomsky, Pussy Riot, Arendt’s students, and a variety of others
  3. “The number of jobs listed on PhilJobs has been fairly steady since 2013” — data from Carolyn Dicey Jennings (UC Merced)
  4. “One key problem with the primacy of consent in our sex politics is that its conceptual thinness has been remedied by increasingly more robust, sometimes ridiculous redefinitions” — an insightful, informative essay from Joseph Fischel (Yale) on Title IX, sexual norms, and “democratic hedonism”
  5. 52 hours per person, per year — how much time researchers, on average, spend reformatting manuscripts for publication
  6. Blast from the Past: “We have been observing behavior like [this] for over a decade. Why was he so rarely called on it by other philosophers?” — five years ago
  7. “Why aren’t more doctoral students writing protest letters to their departments? Let’s not wait for them to do so before we act ourselves.” — reflections on the “polite revolt” in Columbia’s English and Comparative Literature Department

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!
