Genealogy of Influence
Author(s):

Project Description:
As the author himself recognizes, this is a highly ambitious project that aims at creating a genealogical tree of the influence of writers and artists through history.

The graph was made using a Graphviz port by Pixelglow. As for references, Mike Love used many Wikipedia articles, Stanford's Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Axel's Castle, Philosophy in the Tragic Age of the Greeks, The Modern Mind, Contingency Irony and Solidarity, the Passion of the Western Mind, and The Worldly Philosophers, clearly focusing more on the Western World. Although static, each node in the graph is clickable and leads to a Wikipedia article.
