Objectivist Dictionary Project

I am currently in the process of laying down the fundamentals and overall scheme for an Objectivist dictionary. It would differ from a usual dictionary in that there would be a list of constituent concepts corresponding to each word that subsumes a higher-level abstraction.

One common-sense benefit of this could be a situation in which one wants to learn a new concept, but its definition is quite helping. They could look at the list of constituent concepts they would have had to have learned previously in order to have understood the principal one they are trying to learn. They could then learn its constituent concepts first and come to eventually grasp the full meaning of the concept they originally sought to integrate.

I am currently seeking willing individuals to collaborate with on this project.

A draft of a possible introduction can be found here: Introduction to Objectivist Dictionary
