Project Idea

As a Philosophy major, I am interested in developing a digital tool that facilitates reading and learning philosophy.  I’ve been thinking about an interactive world map that will shift through the different major eras of philosophical thought (Ancient, Modern, etc).  Each era will have specific highlighted regions that you could mouse-over to reveal a pop up window that lists the philosophers prominent in that region, during that time.  Each philosopher would then link out to another pop up window that gives a brief bio of the author, his/her work, and his/her major contributions; list of his/her prominent authored works (with links to text when available); and a short list of related authors (with links to their pop up).  This would allow a quick and easily navigable history of philosophy in order to establish context (both historically and geographically) which is essential to understanding much of philosophical text.
