Diogenet Project: Intellectual Networks of Ancient Greece

Diogenet is a dataset and a series of web applications for investigating the impact of social networks on the emergence and development of ancient Greek philosophy. In contrast to most approaches to the intellectual history of classical antiquity, we do not only focus on philosophers but also on the social ties that linked them. In addition, we do not limit ourselves to studying relations among intellectuals, but also consider family members, romantic partners, friends, and benefactors. We think that moving away from the idea that philosophical and scientific fields are closed systems allows a better understanding of the social processes that underlie the construction of knowledge in the ancient world.
