Why is there something rather than nothing?

This is the website for a project devoted to the history of the problem of Why Existence. The project seeks to study, overhaul, and offer novel research directions (if not an answer per se) to the deepest question of all: the riddle of why existence. But the focus is on the development of the question and its answers, looking at the space of possibilities (to both the posing and answering), which evolves as new knowledge springs forth. The problem of existence thus becomes a kind of lens through which to see background changes in knowledge with more clarity, but simultaneously we will be able to appreciate with far more detail than ever before the problem of why existence and why it is so challenging.
