Notable Links for Thinking and Linking

* Berit Brogaard discusses cases of people who have come away from accidents with savant abilities.

* A surprisingly fun paper on the problems with current copyright law (namely, that as it is currently structured, a lot of ordinary activities are technically copyright violations:
John Tehranian, Infringement Nation: Copyright Reform and the Law/Norm Gap (PDF)

* David Hyder, Time, Norms, and Structure in Nineteenth-Century Philosophy of Science (PDF)

* An Arthurian Bibliography

* Elliot Milco discusses philosophy and recent movies

* R. J. Snell corrects some common misapprehensions about natural law theory; I'm not quite so thrilled with Rhonheimer, although I think he is a good corrective if taken with other things.

* Jason Zarri thinks through strong conditionals for sentential logics; being a sworn enemy of the material conditional outside certain limited contexts, I approve of such endeavors.

* As Advent giving begins to approach, I'd like to point out two possible charities to consider:

Mission Asset Fund, which organizes Lending Circles providing zero-interest loans for low-income families

Africa Windmill Project, which helps Malawi farmers make use of basic technologies to improve farming practices, turning unstable subsistence into stable security

    Another one you may want to include sometime - not sure you actually want to, but it seems like something that would normally be on your radar - would be Leah Libresco being formally received into the Catholic Church.
