Links of Note

* The 2016 Best Illusion of the Year Contest. I actually think the best one is the one that got second place, Kokichi Sugihara's Ambiguous Cylinder Illusion, a perspective illusion that really has to be seen to be believed:

Here are instructions for doing a simple version of the illusion yourself.

* A Physics World podcast on Robert Grosseteste

* Whewell's Gazetter, Year 3, Vol #02, for your history of science pleasure

* Jonathan Gaisman on Scruton on Wagner.

* The Austen Family music books (ht: MrsD)

* Jeremy Holmes on Aquinas's commentary on Job. It is indeed a very good commentary; I think only Saadia Gaon's is in the same league.

* The current case that Charles Dawson is probably the one responsible for the Piltdown Man hoax.

* Clare Coffey, No Ordinary Place, on public libraries

* Joseph Ryan Kelly interviews Eleonore Stump on her book The God of the Bible and the God of the Philosophers.

* Otto Neurath's stint as a happiness consultant.

* The works to which C. S. Lewis refers in An Experiment in Criticism

* Martha Nussbaum on anger

* Rachel Aviv on Martha Nussbaum

* An interesting series on the Transfiguration and hermeneutics at "Alastair's Adversaria"

* Two major sources for the history of liturgy: The Gelasian Sacramentary and the Verona Sacramentary

* A podcast panel on the Confucian uses of hierarchy at "microphilosophy"
