Mini-Heap


New additions to the Heap of Links…

  1. “An understanding of Coleridge’s thinking… provides insight into the beginnings of the analytic-Continental divide and a bridge between materialist and dynamic (powers-based) views in the sciences” — Peter Cheyne (Shimane) on the philosophy of Samuel Taylor Coleridge
  2. Radical embodied cognitive science — a conversation ranging across philosophy and psychology with Richard Brown (CUNY) and Tony Chemero (Cincinnati)
  3. “What do accountants know about morality? More than you might think, but not enough” — Robert Bloomfield (Cornell) sets out “moral accounting” and asks philosophers for feedback
  4. “Rogue Philosophers” is a new video series of conversations — between academic philosopher Jennifer Scuro and philosophical counselor Monica Vilhauer
  5. The park in Athens that is home to the site of Plato’s Academy is getting a makeover — the plan, which includes a new archaeological museum, “fully respects the history of the space and revives the spirit of the Platonic Academy for the simultaneous education of mind and body,” says Greece’s culture minister
  6. “I think imagination can do much more than philosophers often give it credit for” — an interview with Amy Kind (Claremont McKenna)
  7. 29 philosophers agree: enough with the repugnant conclusion already! — in Utilitas. (Editorial note: ok, but let’s stop framing Parfit’s problems as *about* population; his “population problems” are no more about population than trolley problems are about trolleys)

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!
