Brendan Griffen created a map that visually demonstrates how the world’s greatest minds influenced each other.
“Color-coded by genre—so, for instance, fiction authors are in orange, while 19th/20th century philosophers are in red—each node presents a person, and its size is determined by the number of links to other nodes.
