  5. “We should not want Trump to suffer from a disease” — Why not? Brendan de Kenessey (Toronto) makes the case in The Washington Post
  6. “‘Naturalism’ is a tremendously ambiguous term, used to denote many substantively distinct views” — a survey and taxonomy of the varieties of naturalism in philosophical discourse by Amanda Bryant (Lisbon)
  7. “Our confused sense organs mistakenly perceive collections of multiple simples as extended wholes” — Émilie du Châtelet’s solution to the problem of bodies

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!
