Noet’s smart study tools and libraries of hand-selected texts are designed to help you:

Save time

Your Noet Research Library is a database of information. You can search you entire library, a specific series, or book for a word, phrase, or topic. Your books link together, so references link to source texts, letting you jump between works with ease.

Writing a scholarly paper? You can cite your sources automatically, make searchable notes and highlights, and upload your own papers.

Plus, with the Noet app, you can put your library on your mobile devices. Your books, notes, and highlights can go where you go. Start studying the philosophy of Wittgenstein on your iPhone on the bus, then pick up right where you left off on your laptop at home.

Wittgenstein Highlights

With Noet, you can spend less time flipping through books and more time studying.

Study in Greek or Latin

Even if you don’t know Greek or Latin, Noet can help you read works in their original languages. Greek and Latin gloss, morphology, and lemmas are just a click away. Plus, you can set a primary source to scroll in sync with its English language translation.

With Noet’s smart study tools, your dictionaries connect directly to your original-language works. Let’s say that you’re reading Caesar’s The Gallic War and want to see the English definition of “colloquium.” Simply click on the word and Noet will take you to your dictionary of choice. Here you can find definitions, quotes from classical sources, references and more.


While looking through the entry, does a quote or reference catch your eye? Let’s say that you want to see a quote from Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things. Simply click on it and Noet will take you there.

See historical events in context

Noet Research Libraries include an interactive timeline of world history. Is a date referenced in a book? Click on it to jump to Noet’s Timeline to see other significant events.

Want to see what was happening during a particular era? The Timeline is completely searchable.


With Noet’s Timeline, you can better understand how works across the ages influenced historical events and vice versa.

Discover new connections

Over the centuries, writers have been in conversation with each other. For example, the discussion surrounding freedom of expression can be found in sources as diverse as the Old and New Testament, the ancient comedies of Aristophanes, the poetry of Milton, and the political theory of John Stuart Mill. Homer, Euripides, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Henry James, and others wrote about fate. Plato, Locke, Kant, Wittgenstein and other philosophers debated the nature of knowledge.

Smart Searches

With Noet’s connected library, you can join this conversation like never before. With smart searches and linked books, you can trace the discussion across texts, time, and genre. You’ll be able to better understand the development of ideas, relationships between schools of thought, and how each writer influenced those who came after him or her.

Go deeper in your study

Having a Noet Research Library is like having your own research assistant. Need to find every mention of knowledge in Spinoza’s works? A simple search will pull up every reference in seconds. With Noet, you can spend less time gathering data and more time analyzing it, drawing conclusions, and developing your arguments.
