Here’s the latest edition of Mini-Heap.

  1. Is “shmidentity” culturally shminsensitive? — on the philosophical practice of using the “shm-“ prefix for properties that resemble other properties but for some stipulated feature
  2. Nervous about that philosophy exam? Does it help to learn that David Lewis failed his metaphysics exam when he was a grad student? — he mentions this in a letter to David Armstrong
  3. Fortunately, very few philosophers have signed onto the latest episode of academic mobbing — it concerns a fellowship appointment in psychology (via Nathan Cofnas)
  4. A key machine learning task is “modeling fuzzy, changeable patterns implicit in human behavior” — and that’s a central goal of the humanities
  5. The New X-Phi Blog, focusing on the “new experimental philosophy” — it’s new
  6. The two types of Jane Austen fans — a philosophical look at the distinction by Eva Dadlez (Central Oklahoma)
  7. Where’s that paper you once glimpsed at on the web that you’re now trying to recall the details of for something you’re writing now? — here’s a free tool that makes that search much easier

Mini-Heap posts appear when about 7 new items accumulate in the Heap of Links, the ever-growing 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. Thanks!

The newest Mini-Heap is here. Happy reading!

  1. Three arguments for the thesis that sex is socially constructed — deconstructed by Alex Byrne (MIT)
  2. “A student at the local state university… was questioned by police after proposing a rally in support of the philosopher on his social networking page” — “the philosopher” is Kant; vandalism of the statue of him last week was owed to growing tensions over whether to name the local airport for him
  3. “Being a physicist gives a person a certain standing in conversations that have something to do with physics. So why shouldn’t being a woman give me a certain standing in conversations that have something to do with gender?” — Agnes Callard (Chicago) on “managerial standing” in conversations
  4. “Do we have the right to defend [possibly with violence] ourselves and others from government injustice when government agents are following an unjust law?” — yes we do, argues Jason Brennan (Georgetown)
  5. Central European University is moving from Budapest to Vienna — owing to the Hungarian government’s Hungarian government refusing to let it continue to offer U.S. degree programs
  6. A political philosophy experiment at an arts and sciences festival — conducted by Ingrid Robeyns’ Fair Limits Team
  7. “Our fervor for democratic politics bears seeds of democracy’s undoing” — a closer look at political polarization, from Scott Aikin and Robert Talisse (Vanderbilt)
