Metapedia is an electronic encyclopedia about culture, art, science, philosophy and politics.
The word 'Metapedia' is derived from two concepts from classical greek: 'meta' that means 'outside' or 'beyond'; and 'enkyklios paideia' that means '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.
- 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.
