Mini-Heap


The latest links…

  1. “Imagining is not an alternative to reality and rationality or a diminished form of it. Imagining is a complementary form in our ways of knowing” — Luca Tateo (Oslo) on a unified theory of imagining
  2. The mathematics of heaps “looks like a living process” — not about philosophy but this is the “heap” of links so file this under self-understanding
  3. There will be a virtual memorial for Charles Mills on Sunday October 10, 2021, from 2pm to 5pm, EDT — details are on the new Charles Mills memorial website
  4. Audio of philosophy of science lectures from Voice of America’s “Forum: The Arts & Sciences in Mid-Century America” (1963) — the series includes Quine, Hempel, Goodman, Black, Nagel, Putnam, Levi, Morgenbesser, Feyerabend, Suppes, and others (via Boaz Miller)
  5. “What are memoirists doing exactly, when we claim to ‘find’ this form and meaning in our past experience? Are we genuinely discovering it back there or just making it up?” — Helena de Bres (Wellesley) on the philosophy of memoirs
  6. “My model of the world is that there are many, many, many thinkers, ideas and texts that are sufficiently interesting to merit serious consideration” — why Liam Kofi Bright (LSE) opposes philosophical canons
  7. “In sex of all things, where humans so often misconstrue what other humans want… can we ever trust ourselves to know, really know, what an animal wants?” — Amia Srinivasan (Oxford) takes an unflinching look at bestiality

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