I have never come across an app quite like this one. I don’t know too much about philosophy, and this app gives a perfect way to introduce yourself to the topic. All of the philosophers are listed with “tweet-like” quotes that make it easy to understand their main ideas. They also “reply” to other philosophers who have similar or opposing points. If you want to learn more about a particular philosopher, you can easily find links to a list of digital books and audio books. Many of them also seem to be open source! I am truly amazed that all of this is available for free. No option for in-app payments are even included in the app. The value of this app is amazing. I never write reviews, but considering the value and accessibility of this app, I figured it is the least I can do. Easiest 5 star rating ever.
Comprehensive and Intelligent
I’m new to philosophy. New to deeper thinking of any brand, really. I am also highly distractable in terms of interest. When I recently became interested in philosophy/ethics, I immediately downloaded this app and started exploring it.
I’m surprised and pleased to say that I absolutely love it. It also led me to the realization that the reason behind my distractability is one of accessibility. Many of my interests from the past are quite expensive. I think the reason that I’ve stuck with studying this particular topic is simply because this app has so much on offer. E-books, audio books, footnotes. You can learn at your own pace, entirely for free.
I started with Kant. One of the more difficult to understand. And I absolutely love it. This app has caused me to start thinking about philosophy and ethics myself. It has ignited a passion for knowledge in me. All because of the accessibility and comprehensive nature of the app.
And so with that, I would like to extend a sincere message of thanks to the creator of this informative and useful piece of software. Not only for those of us with a mild interest but for those of us who are deciding to pursue life’s fundamental truths ourselves.
This app is an amazing app that delivers information exactly how it should be: through a fun and beautiful method that makes me never want to stop learning. The information of quotes, ideas, and major works with such easy access mixed with minimalism art is so well done and creates an amazing UI. But, there could be some improvements.
• Summary for each philosopher before delving into them and their encyclopedia entries
• Expand timeline in later years to be able to not have to compress them so tightly and not have to scroll back and forth to see them all
• Ideas of philosophers is good when going to one philosopher and looking at theirs and the connections, but the tab for it with all ideas is almost pointless as you can’t tell what is connected
Also, I was wondering if you would be able to add some philosophers that are more recent
Yuval Noah Harari
James Baldwin (maybe)
Thank you so much for an app like this that is so helpful in educating me on these historical figures!
