The recently published Famous-Philosophers.com seeks to assist those who want to learn more about or research prominent philosophers throughout human history. The site features philosophers from all time periods and all civilizations or nations. Alongside a biography of famous philosophers, the website also elaborates on some of the philosophers’ ideas, teachings, and legacies.
On the website, visitors can expect to find a chart with summaries of most, if not all, of the most famous philosophers in the world. The box for each philosopher is linked to his biography page. Each individual entry about the famous philosophers presents a portrait of them and detailed biographies about their lives, including their birth date, where they came from, and their characteristic ideologies and theories.
The website is well organized and lay out with a utilitarian design that is functional without being overly-distracting. It is not only easy to browse but is also very easy to read, with sections clearly marked with subheadings.
Often, the public tends to shy away from philosophy because of its seemingly whimsical nature and lack of effect on daily life. Actually, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The information about the different philosophers on the site shows evidence that they were highly influential and relevant to the society they lived in. Take for instance, Confucius, whose moral philosophy influenced moral traditions and lifestyles of Chinese families even today, centuries after his passing. Also consider Karl Marx, whose political-economic model of the modern world affected the actions and ideology of entire political parties and governments around the world, the result of which is numerous wars and violence. Other philosophers also influenced education, religion, art, social interaction, politics, economics, logic, and even science in society.
The creators of the site had already published several other web projects with success in the past. “We love learning about history, and philosophy is no different,” the owners explained. “Famous philosophers of the past and present definitely change the way society is mapped. Our goal is to showcase these philosophers in a format that is conducive to learning. We wanted to be all-inclusive and as diverse as we can with regards to famous philosophers that make the list. We may have missed a few philosophers but we really did try our best to find the most famous ones. That said, most of our users found the site a useful resource.”
There is no agenda on the website. Any and all famous philosophers are sought from all over the world, all walks of life, and all time periods of human history. The website makes effort to portray and inform the public about how the pioneers of philosophical thought became who they were and how they changed their world.
Despite being relatively new, the site features extensive information introducing the famous philosophers of the world and is quickly becoming a valuable online resource. Being completely dedicated to the topic of philosophy has brought entire squads of visitors flocking to the web site who want to learn more about philosophy and its most respectable pioneers.
