From Major Fun:
Even though Anaxi is a light hearted game suitable for parties and word-nerds alike, the inspiration for the game comes from several philosophers.
The most obvious is John Venn whose diagrams gave visual form to overlapping ideas.
The less obvious connection reaches back to ancient Greece. Anaxi owes its name to the Greek philosopher Anaximander, the father of Cosmology. He wrote about the boundless material of the universe being transformed into all the aspects of the world around us and then returning to this primordial form. How does this relate? Each round, players take basic words and combine them into new forms. The cards return to the decks and can take totally new definitions each round of the game.
You certainly don’t need to know any of these details to have fun with Anaxi but I am glad they took the time to include it.
