This ambitious chart, published by Colton after revisions by Haskel, is just a monolith of names from the Western canon. I can't really even figure a place to dive in, or what I'd learn if I did.

For as laudible as the undertaking was, and for as ahead-of-the-game as I'm sure it was, it's not really all that pretty, and I'm put in a rather pessimistic headspace by imagining all of these great thinkers oozing through history as part of some tangled nest of undulating turds.

Lot of stuff there, though, and worth a look, for sure.
