Philosophers’ Brains

This link is a poster I presented in Tuscon at the Towards a Science of Consciousness Conference (April 2012). Use the link to see a full size PDF that will allow you to zoom ad nauseum without the usual blurriness—vector graphics are so cool!

Summary: we should not be surprised if some of the philosophical differences between philosophers correlate with neurobiological and cognitive differences between philosophers. Whether or not this discounts philosophy or not is an open question, but it sure would be an interesting research program either way!


  1. Hey Nick,

    Poster looks fantastic! Wish I could have been at the conference.
