The internet has given us access to more information than we can possibly imagine. It’s also given us more distractions than we know how to deal with. Now basically anyone can teach themselves about physics, economics, psychology, philosophy, history, and basically any other topics. And yet, few people seem to be taking full advantage of this opportunity.

My name is Lennox Johnson. I started this website to try and make it as easy as possible for anyone to learn about how important ideas have shaped our world. Each day I post the best introductory resources I can find on an important philosophical, scientific or historical topic as well as occasional short readings from classic works of philosophy. By collecting the best educational content the internet has to offer, I hope to make it easy for everyone to get into the habit of learning something valuable every day.
