Krešimir Zauder and me presented for the first time the results of graph theory application to networks consisting of philosophical concepts and those made of philosophers themselves. We showed cases of some interesting previous research in the field. Our approach was specific in analyzing Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy instead of Wikipedia due to more consistent editorial policy and more representative data. Encyclopedia consists of more than 2,000 articles that were written by more than 1,200 contributors.

Krešimir's software extracted data from encyclopedia: articles' titles and types, editorial classification, and out- and in-going links between articles. I did visualization (there are almost 5,000 links between more than 900 philosophers) as well as statistical analysis of links. Results clearly indicates the pattern: distributions are Pareto-like (longtail) whether we are looking at links for the concepts, the philosophers, out- or in-going links, as well as contributors' work.
