As the title suggest, this paper serves as an introduction to the philosophy of panpsychism. I have tried my best to synthesize the sometimes disparate literature on the topic into a single, unified conceptual framework, resolving conflicting ideas as much as possible. By a "rigorous" introduction, I mean that the contents of this paper attempts to be as precise as possible & that the paper is written in a first-principles manner. By "diagrammatic", I mean that graphical illustrations have been chosen as the primary medium of exposition.

I hope this paper has proven useful for new and experienced philosophers alike. I believe graphics are an exceptional medium for explaining complex subjects and, ideally, this paper marks the beginning of a movement towards a more illustration-oriented philosophical literature without sacrificing rigor and sophistication!
