Artist's Description

All of the thinkers and authors in history – in ONE graph!

Two alternative versions can be found here:
Version 2: http://tinyurl.com/dytt32k
Version 3: http://tinyurl.com/c89ppqg

Think of an author/philosopher/comedian. Now find the author by locating their known influences on the graph – these help you find who you’re looking for because like-minded people are clustered together.

How does this graph work? How was it made?
The nodes represent all of the thinkers and comedians on Wikipedia. The size of the nodes indicates how influential their work was to all of the other members of the network. The graph was created by querying a database of Wikipedia and determining their influences (based on the info-boxes of each person). Please see the website below for heaps more information.

Each community is colored based on their relationships within the network. Like-minded people are clustered together:

Red – 19th/20th century philosophers
Green – antiquity & enlightenment philosophers
Pink – enlightenment authors
Yellow – 19th/20th century authors
Orange – fiction authors
Purple – comedians

The interconnected nature of the graph illustrates the landscape of human ideas. Many great influential people are missing from the graph as this information has not become available yet. For the moment, this is a snapshot of the evolution of ideas, from earliest antiquity up until the present day.

There is a more zoomed image available here (http://zoom.it/l3dq),
Please see the website for details of how the graph was made.
