The History of (Western) Philosophy

The History of Philosophy is an interactive tool enabling users to dig into a visual timeline of 2,500 years of philosophical thought and discover lines of agreement and divergence.

The project is the brainchild of Deniz Cem Önduygu, who is continually updating it as he learns more. Since sharing this link on social media, we’ve heard back from readers that the project’s title is something of a misnomer, as no Eastern or Middle Eastern philosophy is surveyed.

Others have chimed in with suggestions of possible inquiry. Önduygu has responded that while he hopes to expand the project’s scope in the future, his aim, for now at least, is to keep things simple.
