New links in the Heap…

  1. “Philosophers have been the source of many of the ideas that have become damaging clichés, so I see nothing puzzling about trying, as a philosopher, to sort out where we’ve collectively gone wrong” — Theodore Gracyk (Minnesota State U. Moorhead) on philosophy and all that jazz
  2. Live interview with John Martin Fisher (UC Riverside) this Wednesday — viewers can send in questions for him to answer during the interview (via Taylor Cyr)
  3. The morality of exposing children to a significant risk of harm in the search for a better life — Lisa Hecht (Stockholm) on how it is reasonable to rely on “rights-weighted expected wellbeing” rather than a precautionary approach in the ethics of migration
  4. Nietzsche in the style of Dr. Seuss — John Holbo (NUS) is making progress on his “On Beyond Zarathustra”
  5. “Astell’s collection has been hiding in plain sight” — Magdalene College Cambridge discoveres a collection of books and pamphlets that had belonged to Mary Astell, many annotated with her notes
  6. The Kit Kat Problem — no, it’s not about what to do if you open one up around more than three other people. Jason Brennan (Georgetown) explains
  7. Philosophy of Art Workshops — an ongoing video series from Aesthetics for Birds

Mini-Heap posts usually appear when 7 or so new items accumulate in the Heap of Links, the 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!
