Mini-Heap


New additions to the Heap of Links…

  1. The Guardian published an interview with Judith Butler but then deleted paragraphs of it — Why?
  2. “Whataboutism” and “that’s not who we are” — John Martin Fischer (UCR) on how to understand these common political moves
  3. “We are bodily beings, whose bodily existence has intrinsic worth, yet for whom dependence and disability are natural” — What this implies for medical care is the topic of an interview with Christopher Tollefsen (South Carolina)
  4. That sound you heard was thousands of philosophy professors whispering to themselves, “yes!” — Students will once again know what we’re talking about when we reference The Matrix in class. Check out the trailer for “The Matrix Resurrections”
  5. “There is no monolithic ‘women’s experience’… Feminist theory is riddled with disagreement” — “Today, the most visible war within Anglo-American feminism is over the place of trans women in the movement, and in the category of ‘women,'” writes Amia Srinivasan (Oxford)
  6. It’s sometimes asked “why the Islamic world never experienced something like the European Enlightenment” — according to Peter Adamson (LMU), part of the answer may be that it did, just a few hundred years earlier
  7. “To litigate Boxill’s guilt or innocence is to miss the point entirely” — the real scandal is the “wide chasm between Chapel Hill’s squeaky-clean reputation and the contortions that so-called amateurism demanded”

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!
