Graph | The illustrated guide to a PhD
A very simple diagram by Matt Might that perfectly illustrates what it means to do a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) relative to our collective knowledge.
All of human knowledge
Your relative knowledge after school, bachelors and masters
A PhD pushing out the boundaries of collective knowledge
But do not forget the bigger picture.
Well done to all of those pushing out that boundary. Collectively you are increasing the circle for all of us.
