Here’s the latest Mini-Heap—10 recent items of possible interest to those interested in philosophy, from the Heap of Links.

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.

Discussion welcome.

  1. “Philosophy, at its best, embodies a kind of cosmopolitan ideal… superficial distinctions between people are erased, and what remains are opportunities for peaceful collaborative effort in a transnational and transtemporal republic of letters” — as we learn from a look at Carnap & Xunzi
  2. A new “angry professor book project” — from Kieran Healy (Duke)
  3. At Google, “each and every team member must feel confident speaking up and making mistakes” — two things philosophers have lots of experience with, no?
  4. Questions about the philosophy of math — answered by Alexander Paseau (Oxford)
  5. My letter writer has died; what do I do? — Miss Manners did not cover this
  6. How utilitarian are you? — test yourself on the Oxford Utilitarianism Scale
  7. What would make anti-racist optimism rational? — thoughts from Gina Schouten (Harvard), one of the new bloggers at Crooked Timber
  8. “If I am both my children and my mother, if I carry traces of my sibling and remnants of pregnancies that never resulted in birth, does that change who I am and the way I behave in the world?” — genetics and the separateness of persons
  9. Does philosophy advance “through singular, brilliant, novel insights” or through “the grind” of small changes to “a vast, complex network of well defended, nearly fully formed positions”? — Charles Pence (LSU) on brilliance and merit in philosophy
  10. “Colors are not properties of minds (visual experiences), objects, or lights, but of perceptual processes—interactions that involve all three” — Mazviita Chirimuuta (Pittsburgh) talks about color at Nautilus
