New additions to the Heap of Links…

Discussion welcome.

  1. “Philosophy saved my life at 22 by giving me a way out of a life that would have killed me sooner rather than later. And philosophy saved me again, just the other day…” — an interview with Shay Welch (Spelman)
  2. There are “areas of science where an ‘exactitude culture’ is too dominant” — three “cultures” of science and the case for “scientific transculturalism”
  3. Elizabeth Harman (Princeton) gave the 2024 Annual Uehiro Lectures in Practical Ethics at Oxford — here are videos of and handouts for the three-part lecture series, entitled “Love and Abortion”
  4. “To American sensibilities, the fact that the head of state was speaking at an eighteenth-century philosopher’s birthday party was already extraordinary. Why shouldn’t there be drag for good measure?” — report from Kant’s tricentennial birthday celebration in Berlin
  5. How should we interpret neuroscience for the purposes of doing philosophy of mind? — a symposium at The Brains Blog on “The Brain Abstracted” by Mazviita Chirimuuta (Edinburgh)
  6. “The practice of suspending students before arresting them attests to the fact that students do have a right to assemble on campus… The message from administrators is clear: You will lose your status as a student if you exercise the rights that belong to you as students” — Judith Butler (Berkeley) and George Yancy (Emory) on the protests
  7. “While the novel is certainly illuminating in its grasp of social history, it goes much further, offering an enlightening perspective on the philosophy of history as well” — a new historical novel is a “creative retelling of al-Ghazali’s life story”

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.
