Weekend Mini-Heap…

  1. A series of online talks this summer in moral philosophy — organized by Gwen Bradford (Rice)
  2. “The objective of this study was to empirically test the wide belief that Reviewer #2 is a uniquely poor reviewer” — Conclusion: “Reviewer #2 is not the problem. Reviewer #3 is. In fact, he is such a bad actor that he even gets the unwitting Reviewer #2 blamed for his bad behavior.”
  3. Imagine a flood destroying all of your books — this happened to philosophy professor Glenn Moots (Northwood), who lost 15,000 volumes, and now his colleagues & others & maybe you are helping him rebuild
  4. “Even feminist activists can fall into the trap of implying that ‘real’ or ‘serious’ pain can’t be psychological in origin” — Elizabeth Barnes (Virginia) on the entangled issues related to taking seriously women’s pain
  5. “Being harassed by a senior colleague who threatened to kill my beloved dog” — one of the career “low points” of Anne Margaret Baxley (Wash. U. St. Louis), interviewed at What Is It Like To Be A Philosopher?
  6. What will happen when the robots go into business? — at the intersection of artificial intelligence, business ethics, and political economy
  7. The third annual “Young Philosopher Award” contest was held online this year — the Irish Times reports on the event

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!
