Mini-Heap


The latest additions to the Heap…

  1. “We come to view our own inability to conform to the structures of philosophy… as proof that we’re not suited for philosophy” — what it’s like to be a philosopher with ADHD
  2. The minimal amount of energy needed for life is lower than previously thought — which “opens up the possibility that life exists in realms where scientists might not have looked before”
  3. Animal Ethics from the Margins has a new website — the project is “an attempt to highlight the work of underrepresented voices in the animal ethics literature”
  4. “The Epstein affair brings to light a much larger problem: it undermines the integrity of the research enterprise when individuals can pick and choose lines of inquiry that appeal to them simply because they can pay for them.” — Naomi Oreskes (Harvard) in Scientific American (via Steven DeLay)
  5. A statue of Hypatia has been erected — in a new culture and arts district in Cairo
  6. “How I reduced student email load by ~95%” — and other posts about teaching at “New Normal,” a new blog from University of Toronto philosophy PhD student Boaz Schuman
  7. Scholars, should you study what you love? — many people say yes, but Martin Lenz (Groningen) dissents

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!
