The History of Philosophy
This is my summary of the history of (Western) philosophy showing the positive/negative connections between some of the key ideas/arguments of the philosophers. It is not an automated text analysis project; the content and the connections are the result of my years of reading and taking notes, so it’s a never-ending work-in-progress – a big research project for me in addition to being an information visualization challenge.
To browse it in detail (with interaction) and to read more about it, you can go to The History of Philosophy. (Mobile devices are not yet supported.)

I am deeply thankful to Hüseyin Kuşçu
who offered his programming skills for the interactive version.
I also thank my friend Eser Aygün for writing the program that automatized to a great degree the transition between the spreadsheet that I fill in and the visual end-product for the static version in the beginning of this project. (The current version is way beyond being printable and hangable on a wall in terms of size.)
