A taxonomy of philosophy

philtaxon2.pngDavid Chalmers and David Bourget have developed a taxonomy of philosophy for use in the PhilPapers project. I couldn't resist plotting them, either as a bubbly tree or as a more compact tree (pdfs).

It is fun to see just how much is under the heading "philosophy" - especially since I suspect there is plenty left out in this hierarchy. Many branches go fairly deep within other fields.
