About us

Theoriq is a collaborative online library which congregates all Principles around us, with a special focus on the humanities, social sciences and entrepreneurship.

Our mission

Our mission is to collect in one place all theories so that to understand better our world, in an informal and enjoyable fashion intended for the general public – what we call “casual learning”, so that any curious fellow can come to learn and nurture their minds.

~

Merriam Webster tells us that a theory is a “plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena”; and the Collins dictionary that theory is “consisting in a knowledge of its principles and methods rather than in its practice”. In other words, it is not uncommon to oppose theory to practice as theory.

Theoriq builds a bridge between theory and practice. As such Theoriq is a new player in the digital landscape of knowledge.

Where is the novelty?

We are the first online platform whose mission is to assemble all the theories of this world, common observations about life. We open it to anyone so that to illustrate those theories through their own experience and / or knowledge.

In fact, we bring to the internet age a way of transmitting knowledge as old as our schoolbooks: to describe a theory, which comes most often from a teacher, author or expert; and to demonstrate or invalidate it through an example. In Theoriq case, our users are the ones who bring the example(s), thanks to their own experience and understanding.

Theoriq thus becomes a place that aims to gather all the human experiences and observed facts by linking them to a given theory.

And that's the whole idea. While the majority of facts supporting theories are scattered across hundreds of thousands of resources- often time-stamped as they relate to a particular event, we are grouping these facts in one place, in one page. And we unify those under one theory.

Last, you can support or disapprove a theory by voting for each entry.

How does it work?

1 / Examples

Anyone can add an example to a theory. Upon approval, these are published. Visitors can then vote for the best examples, which will move up in the list.

2 / Theories

Theories are linked to categories, authors and books (optional), in order to optimize indexing, and therefore the discoverability of the content. Unlike the examples, in order to add theories to Theoriq, you must first become an author. Please read below.
