Recent additions to the Heap…

Discussion welcome.

  1. Books from Kant’s personal library are among those being digitized as part of a cultural preservation project in Kaliningrad — “the project coincides with the upcoming 300th anniversary of Kant’s birth and is part of a series of citywide celebrations”

  2. “If Hamas was hiding a control base under an Israeli hospital and it was Israeli civilians at risk, would Israel think that attacking the hospital would be justified? If the answer is ‘no,’ then the attack against Shifa hospital is also not justified” — Jessica Wolfendale (Case Western) on proportionality and civilian equality

  3. “The Chimp-pig hypothesis is that humans might be hybrids of a pig and some chimps” — It’s also a thought experiment to make you feel like you’re “having a deeply-held belief challenged,” the discomfort of which may be beneficial in a few ways (via the Browser)

  4. The wisdom and limits of conservatism — Brad Skow (MIT) is in search of a “rapprochement between Burke and Mill”

  5. Videos on neuroscience and philosophy — a collection of series of videos by various researchers, from the Brains Blog and Neural Mechanisms Online

  6. “A ‘theory of everything’ that weaves an idea of justice where climate and colonialism come together” — Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò (Georgetown) is profiled at Vox

  7. “A philosopher extolling the merits of philosophy should be treated as suspiciously as a butcher waxing lyrical about meat or a beautician praising the wonder of botox” — is the author this piece sufficiently self-suspicious?

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.
