The long-term aim of this project is to create an online tool able to represent the complex data of the philosophers’ lives, works and scientific networks in a way which makes the data easily accessible and comprehensible. Furthermore, it is also capable of generating new knowledge from the given information, creating new insights out of the incorporated data concerning the scientific and personal exchanges between the different members of the scientific networks. Thus, the timeline enables knowledge production worth the term.
The first full version comprises the life data, events and publications of the three women phenomenologists: Edith Stein, Hedwig Conrad-Martius, and Gerda Walther. More women philosophers will be presented soon.
A special function of the timeline is a map showing the locations of women philosophers around the world.
