Mini-Heap


Monday Mini-Heap…

  1. “There is no more fascinating figure in early modern philosophy than…” — someone most people haven’t heard of
  2. “The critical ethical challenge is to render the relationship between individual agency and structural change more perspicuous” — Vafa Ghazavi (Oxford) on how philosophers can help make sense of the pandemic’s “complicated chains of harm”
  3. “Even now one is ashamed of resting, and prolonged reflection almost gives people a bad conscience.” — What did Nietzsche have to say about work?
  4. What philosophical work should you do if you want to influence the rate of technological development? — reflections from Caleb Ontiveros
  5. Interested in philosophy of law or the theoretical study of legal institutions and practices? — join the Legal Philosophy Network, a new Facebook group started by Alex Guerrero (Rutgers)
  6. You may not know her name, but some ideas this philosopher discussed in the early 1900s may sound familiar — Joel Katzav (Queensland) on Helen Huss Parkhurst’s imaginative approach to radical realism
  7. Highly charged debates, journals with high standards, “increasingly technical fine-points,” and the “sharp-edged and somewhat cliquish” environment — some reasons the field of Indian philosophy can be intimidating to a younger scholar, according to Douglas Berger (Leiden)

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. Discussion welcome.

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!
