New week starts with a new Mini-Heap…

  1. “We want to know who we are; and that means knowing honestly what we have done” — Daniel Little (UM-Dearborn) on ethical issues in the philosophy of history
  2. Philosophers share their advice and hopes with philosophy students — John Symons (Kansas) in conversation with Daniel Dennett, Edouard Machery, Luciano Floridi, Agnes Callard, and others
  3. How Bertrand Russell turned The Beatles against the Vietnam War — Paul McCartney explains on an episode of The View (2009) (via MR)
  4. “Rawls was so deeply in the grip of white ignorance about the centrality of racism and white supremacy to the creation of the modern Western world” that he created a theory of justice “inapplicable to his own country” — an interview with Charles Mills (CUNY)
  5. A London art gallery will show 8 exhibitions during 2021 that explore questions put forth in Hannah Arendt’s “Between Past and Future: Eight Exercises in Political Thought” — the exhibitions will feature more than 20 international artists
  6. “The executive order serves to suppress the evidence-based research and teaching of highly regarded scholars” — the APA Board of Officers issues a statement opposing President Trump’s executive order on race and sex stereotyping
  7. An online magazine about public philosophy — “Oxford Public Philosophy” features an interesting array of interviews, essays, poetry, and more

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!
