Recent additions to the Heap of Links…

  1. Would a journal consortium solve some of philosophy’s article publication problems? — Brian Weatherson (Michigan) sketches what it might look like
  2. When calls for interdisciplinarity are really “antidisciplinary” — Paul Griffiths (Sydney) goes over some of the warning signs
  3. “Scientific rigour with wildly imaginative theorising” — a profile of David Chalmers (NYU) and a discussion of some of the ideas in his new book, Reality+
  4. “Locke was misled in his thought experiment… by his construal of the broad epistemic limits of sensibility” — an essay, with photos, on Locke, microscopes, telescopes, photography, and vision by Aderemi Artis (University of Michigan–Flint)
  5. “They probably pay you pretty well for that.” “Yeah. Wait, what?” — academic publishing in a nutshell
  6. “Recent architectures in deep learning are illuminated by and in turn empirically vindicate some of the more speculative (and often derided) empiricist ideas about these faculties from the history of philosophy” — Cameron Buckner (Houston) on empiricism, imagination, and artificial intelligence
  7. “Circumstances alter cases, and online communication of specific types may harm in one context but not in another” — Onora O’Neill (Cambridge) thinks legislation about this should “focus on online wrongs rather than online harms, on action rather than outcome”

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!
