  5. Loneliness and the need to be needed — philosophers on how to better understand, measure, and address loneliness
  6. A philosophy course taught by your favorite memes of 2021 — by Ali Fitzgerald in The New Yorker

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!
