Mini-Heap


New links…

Discussion welcome.

  1. What does it mean to be “liberal all the way down”? — Alexandre Lefebvre (Sydney) talks about the personal and the political with Robert Talisse (Vanderbilt)
  2. “A key part of the study of human rationality is a theory of rational inquiry for bounded agents” — David Thorstad (Vanderbilt) discusses “inquiry under bounds”
  3. “If you picture being at home now but with your router destroyed and your phone disconnected—that is really not what it was like” — Patricia Marino (Waterloo) would like your help recalling the “textural experience of life before the internet”
  4. “Within a single domain, status is zero-sum—I cannot move up the substack leaderboard without someone else moving down—but status-in-general is not” — Brad Skow (MIT) on multiple status hierarchies
  5. Advice: “sleep with people for whom sex is as important as it is to you” — Lillian Fishman asks, “What are we doing when we have sex with someone for whom sex isn’t what it is for us?”
  6. “Aspects of how we organize ourselves ought to be keyed to… the world we hope to build. But we may find that the world as it already has been organized prevents meaningful progress toward that ideal” — Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò (Georgetown) and others on climate, state, and utopia
  7. “Analytical philosophy… is premised upon certain kinds of dualism… certain kinds of unintelligible distinctions” — Michael Della Rocca (Yale) in conversation with Hilary Lawson and Sophie Scott-Brown

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.
