The Phylosophy Project

Phylo began with The Phylosophy Project, which documented the faculty and Ph.D. recipients from nearly two dozen North American philosophy department over the past 130 years. The CUNY Graduate Center funded the initial data collection, and CUNY's New Media Lab funded the development of an interactive interface for exploring and adding to the data set.

As part of an ongoing effort to expand our data set, Phylo has supplemented the original data with data from various sources.

As of December 5, 2021, our database contains 17,335 individuals and 5,022 institutions of higher education around the world.

We recently upgraded our software to accommodate Phylo Jobs, our new jobs board. This upgrade requires some modifications to the data visualization software that we use to display the individuals and institutions in our database. We are working to restore access to the database and accompanying visualizations.
