History of Philosophy
This is my ever-growing summary of the history of (Western) philosophy showing the positive/negative connections between some of the key ideas/arguments/statements of the philosophers. It is not an automated text analysis project: the content and the connections are the result of my personal efforts of reading and note-taking, so it’s a never-ending work-in-progress – my main area of non-academic research since 2014.
To browse it in detail (with interaction) and to read more about it, you can go to History of Philosophy. (Best viewed in Chrome, desktop.)

I am deeply thankful to Hüseyin Kuşçu
who offered his programming skills for the creation of 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 visualization, 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.)
