Mini-Heap


New links of interest to those interested in philosophy…

  1. “The position of advocating for moderation, civility, and civic friendship does not magically rise above the fray, rendering itself, by its peaceable face, immune to debunking arguments and accusations of motivated reasoning” — C. Thi Nguyen (Utah) on polarization, propaganda, and political explanation
  2. An online Wittgenstein gallery — featuring photos, notes, and other materials
  3. Can one “get credit for doing the right thing without seeing oneself as doing the right thing”? — Nomy Arpaly (Brown) on understanding accidentality
  4. “Eventually, the algorithm will find you” — Simon DeDeo (CMU) on why he quit social media
  5. “I think offering a platform for reasoned argument is not participating in oppression. I think it’s trying to get to the truth” — very good interview of Peter Singer (Princeton) by Daniel Gross in The New Yorker
  6. “With collective identity comes collective responsibility” — Jessica Wolfendale (Marquette) explains how this applies to the military in regard to war crimes
  7. “We need the combined wisdom of the mathematician, the philosopher and the psychological counsellor to help combat the forces that sustain problem gambling” — Catalin Barboianu with an interesting argument for practical, applied interdisciplinarity

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!
