Philosophy in Shapes


The project Philographics creates a series of posters “explaining complex philosophical theories through basic shapes.”

This piece enlarges some of the posters, so that you can read the brief description while eyeing the graphic of concepts such as relativism, hedonism, solipsism, and more. Peruse the collection if you’re looking to refresh your understanding of Western philosophy, or to see if you agree with the visual depictions chosen.
