Scientific Paradigm Network

Sometimes, a picture is worth 1000 morsels of food for thought. Here is a map of selected scientific topical categories courtesy of Seed Magazine and Map of Science. In this graph, each of the 776 categories is a paradigm with an epistomological basis. The linkages between them represent shared papers between paradigms. Visit the Information Esthetics website for more information (reprints of the poster version are sold out). Having been originally published in 2006, the arcs of the network (citation information) are bit out of date. The overall topology, however, is still valid.
