To the Best of Our Knowledge Kickstarter Project
The folks at To the Best of Our Knowledge have launched a Kickstarter project: A comic book about the science of consciousness.
PRI's weekly radio show, To the Best of Our Knowledge, is producing a six-hour radio series on the science of consciousness, featuring interviews with many of the leading experts -- neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, philosophers, writers, and artists. And they've come up with a great companion piece that will help make all these tricky ideas more approachable: A comic book!
The comic book will be an imaginative story, using illustrations to explore some of the deepest questions in science: How do our brains work? Are animals conscious? What about computers? Will we ever crack the “mind-brain problem”? And what does all this brain science tell us about the most personal question of all: Who am I?
To support the cost of producing the comic book, the folks at To the Best of Our Knowledge have gone to Kickstarter, the crowd-funding website for creative projects. The project is currently close to half-funded, and they have 11 days left to make their $15,000 goal.
