Animating philosophy: RSA Animate draws human behavior

Philosophy and economy: The two subjects have never been known for their whimsy and fun. Until, that is, RSA Animate came around. The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce holds regular speeches at its headquarters in London discussing human motivations for economic and social behaviors. To liven them up for a YouTube generation, an illustration team animates the speech at rapid fire on a white board. The resulting experience? A whimsical, fun philosophical experience for today's lunch break. Really.

Here are two favorites. For more, check out their work here: "What Drives Us" and "The Secret Powers of Time."
