Mini-Heap


New links in the Heap…

  1. 200 Proof Liberals — a new group political philosophy blog
  2. In a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic, it isn’t always clear what ethicists should be focusing on — so the first step is to “triage” ethical issues themselves, says David Shaw (Basel, Maastricht)
  3. 40 logicians from 8 countries took part in a 24-hour meeting earlier this month “to discuss ways we might make logic more inclusive and thereby take a small step in efforts to mitigate racism” — Teresa Kouri Kissel (ODU) reports on #ShutDownLogic
  4. Why you should self-archive your research and how to do it — advice from Rebecca Lea Morris
  5. “It it will be extremely important for students to refrain from all contact with one another outside of academic and residential settings.” Uh oh. — new research on how to contain the spread of COVID-19 on campuses this fall.
  6. “They succeed in keeping people in their place” — to see what something’s function is, see what it actually does. Todd May (Clemson) and George Yancy (Emory) on the police
  7. Malala Yousafzai, the youngest recipient ever of a Nobel Peace Prize, has graduated from Oxford –the NYT couldn’t resist noting in the sub-headline that the philosophy, politics, and economics major is “currently unemployed”

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!
