Mini-Heap


New links for people interested in philosophy…

  1. What is meat? — Andy Lamey (UCSD) takes up the question, and why it matters, in the NYT
  2. A podcast/discussion series on consciousness — “Consciousness Live!”, created by Richard Brown (CUNY/LaGuardia), currently has over 40 episodes featuring philosophers, scientists, artists, and others
  3. The neoliberal case for a universal basic income — from Matt Zwolinski (San Diego)
  4. Sometimes, irrational beliefs deliver “significant epistemic benefits that could not be easily attained otherwise” — Lisa Bortolotti (Birmingham) and other philosophers on “epistemic innocence”
  5. Decolonizing political theory — a reading list compiled by David Owen (Southampton)
  6. “I think of myself as a very passionate and committed naturalist.” Also, regarding consciousness, “it’s the only thing.” — an interview with Galen Strawson (Texas)
  7. “Extreme economic inequality, whether it matters as such or ‘merely’ for its effects, is pernicious” — Samuel Scheffler (NYU) in the New York Times

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!
