Mini-Heap


Links recently added to the Heap…

  1. Lots of logic videos — over 180 of them, by Professor Sara Uckelman (Durham)
  2. “The change is meant to reflect all four cardinal virtues of government identified by the Greek philosopher Plato in his most famous work, the Republic” — the Georgia House of Representatives adds “courage” to the state’s pledge of allegiance, which already mentions wisdom, justice, and moderation (via Tim O’Keefe)
  3. “There are many opportunities to include Africana philosophy in your teaching curriculum; indeed it should be possible for just about any topic you might name” — Liam Kofi Bright (LSE) & Peter Adamson (LMU) have some advice on how to do it
  4. Margaret Cavendish wrote “a proto-SF novel that explores early modern science, feminist and queer thought, and political philosophy” in 1666 — and Helen De Cruz (SLU) has posted a summary and illustrations of it
  5. “Who knew that philosophy… could still be this controversial?” — Mark Oppenheimer & Jason Werbeloff, hosts of the Brain in the Vat podcast, defend the pursuit of “unaskable questions” in the wake of the controversy over Stephen Kershnar’s appearance on their program
  6. There was a mistake in that “That’s Not Kant” post — thanks to Daniele Procida it has now been fixed, and an additional portrait of Kant that’s kind of badass has been added
  7. Philosophers discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine at Oxford — with Jeff McMahan, Janina Dill, Helen Frowe, Massimo Renzo, Zofia Stemplwoska, and Elad Uzan

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!
