Metapedia is an electronic encyclopedia which focuses on culture, art, science, history, politics and philosophy.
The word Metapedia is derived from two classical Greek concepts: μετά (metá) meaning outside or beyond and ἐγκύκλιος παιδεία (enkýklios paideía) that is encyclopedia. The name has a dual symbolic meaning:
- Metapedia sets its focus on topics that usually are not covered in — i.e. that falls outside of — mainstream encyclopedias or that are distorted and unfactually presented elsewhere.
- Metapedia has a metapolitical purpose, to influence the mainstream debate, culture and historical view.
The project is still in its early stages, but the database is growing every day and you are heartily welcome to contribute to the growth of this valuable and unique encyclopedia.
