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. 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.

Could you please put the date alongside the mini-heap title. I like to store the daily nous emails in my files for future reference. However the file system does not accept same name records. So perhaps a suitable heading would be “Mini-Heap 221206” for todays email.

Many thanks.
