Where in the World is Christine Korsgaard?

My previous philosophy maps are a bit hard to navigate, so I did an annotated version. This helps find out the clusters of favorite philosophers.

It is interesting to see that the philosophers are so unevenly distributed. I used names I knew or that I found using the Wikipedia genealogy (leaving out a few due to graphical constraints). There are "big names" in most parts of the graph, but entire subclusters with no celebrities. I wonder if this is because they are too specialised to be well-known.
