The Smartencyclopedia organizes human knowledge in a way that allow a reader to learn information, not just for its own sake, but for its value to the world as a whole. The underlying goal of the encyclopedia is to promote knowledge that leads to happiness, well-being, and world peace.
The Smartencyclopedia is an ever-expanding body of knowledge that currently contains thousands of carefully selected articles.
The Smartencyclopedia is intended for use by teachers and students and people who are drawn to the ease of use of Wikipedia, but are concerned about quality, consistency, and core values. Smartencyclopedia combines the great benefits of open source internet media with those of traditional and careful editorial supervision. Here we have the benefit of hyperlinks and greater detail found in on-line encyclopedias, combined with the traditional review of facts, grammar, and values.
This encyclopedia transcends the metaphysical assumptions of both the Enlightenment and Modern Encyclopedias.
