Australasian Philosophy Family Tree

This is an attempt at a "family" tree for Australasian philosophy. It consists of Australian and New Zealand philosophers and various relatives, related by the Ph.D. supervisor relation or nearest equivalent. This can be considered part of Josh Dever's philosophy family tree project, and is subject to roughly the same general principles outlined there. (See also Toby Handfield's chart of Australasian philosophers with Erdös numbers.) It is still quite incomplete, with good coverage of some Australasian universities and only patchy coverage of others. Please send along any additions and corrections by e-mail.
