On challenging oneself
This project’s seed was planted, in 2018, during a talk I gave at the University of Amsterdam on kin selection and altruism in nature. For me, iterating the book’s mythologized world in collaboration with trusted friends and colleagues is a chance to grow both as scientists and artists, deepen our understanding of what matters, and pay the privilege of our education forward by shedding light on better practices of informal learning techniques for kids.
