Mini-Heap


New philosophy-related links…

  1. Currently #10 at Hacker News: How To Learn Philosophy — at least at the time of this post (via Elle Benjamin)
  2. Robert Brandom (Pittsburgh) taught “Two Forms of Contemporary Antirepresentationalism: Pragmatism and Expressivism” this past term — and has put his course videos and lecture notes online
  3. Mood: “an under-appreciated aspect of why we love some philosophical works” — Helen De Cruz (SLU) on philosophical mood
  4. “Here is why I actually think humanistic inquiry should be defended: because it elevates the human spirit” — Justin E.H. Smith (Paris) with characteristically insightful writing on the humanities, pop culture, pronouns, and more
  5. “Marcel Duchamp proclaimed that something becomes art when an artist says it’s art.” Where does that leave the work of people not recognized as artists? — Michael Spicher (Aesthetics Research Lab) on the artwork of prisoners
  6. How to make a “quinetweet”: a tweet that quote-tweets itself — for the people who feel they spend too much time on Twitter and want to read something that will make them feel that they don’t
  7. A revisionary interpretation of Spinoza’s metaphysics — Martin Lin (Rutgers) is interviewed about his work on Spinoza at 3:16

Mini-Heap posts usually 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!

(P.S. The actual Heap of Links is a bit disordered at the moment. Hope to have it fixed soon.)
