Here are the top five links from Prufrock for the week:

1. Ten philosophers in ten longish sentences.

2. The role of women in the early church.

3. The gloves are off. No one wanted to write Lou Reed’s obituary because he was “one of the coldest, most humourless, arrogant and–worse–boring characters rock’n’roll has ever seen.”

4. The pleasures of archaic words.

5. Can you have an “objective morality” without God?
