Links for the weekend…

  1. “How can we debate issues of reproductive care and technology using language that is respectful and accurate?” — Jane Maienschein (Arizona State) on the science, metaphysics, and ethics of abortion in a pluralistic society (via The Browser)
  2. What does it mean for a “voice” to be present in works of philosophy? How is “voice” different from “style”? Which philosophers write with a distinctive voice? — Nick Riggle (San Diego) on these and related questions
  3. Over 200 discussion guides of popular children’s picture books to help introduce kids to philosophy — with summaries, questions, links to videos of the books being read, and more
  4. “The lack of conclusive arguments or evidence in favour of a fundamental level should encourage us to explore what alternatives there might be” — Tuomas Tahko (Bristol) on the possibility that there are no fundamental building blocks of reality
  5. “In the long run, maintaining the integrity of neutral truth-seeking institutions will better secure substantive justice… than naïve/unconstrained pursuit of this end” — Richard Y. Chappell on morally risky philosophy
  6. “How you can use AI tools to assess, constructively critique, and grade student submissions” — part of a series to help professors learn how to make use of AI in their work, from someone with experience teaching philosophy
  7. “Using controlled stimuli, we find that people are capable of ‘moral thin-slicing’: they reliably identify moral transgressions from visual scenes presented in the blink of an eye” — empirical studies of moral vision (via MR)

Discussion welcome.

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. Thank you.
