Rand Bibliography Visualizations

This website seeks to document the exploration of different datasets produced from citation transcriptions of Benjamin Rand’s Dictionary of Philosophy and Psychology, originally published in 1905. The datasets were produced using complete or near complete sections of transcriptions specific to the subject categorization of Benjamin Rand. The initial exploration of datasets seeks to explore author publications of philosophers and psychologists and how such publications were categorized by Benjamin Rand. Using gephi to visualize the data, six separate visualizations explore the occurrence of author publications within specific year ranges and the occurrence of philosophy and psychology authors publishing works in both philosophy and psychology subjects according the Benjamin Rand’s categorization system.
