Introducing Stephen Butterfill

I’m very happy to introduce Stephen Butterfill, who will be joining us as a Featured Scholar on the blog this week.

Steve holds a DPhil and BPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford and is currently Associate Professor in Philosophy at the University of Warwick.

His research concerns philosophical issues in cognitive and developmental psychology, with a particular focus on joint action and mindreading. In addition to having published numerous philosophical papers, Steve also regularly collaborates with scientists on theoretical as well as experimental projects. Regular readers of the blog might already be familiar with his work with Ian Apperly on the minimal mindreading hypothesis, which was featured in a symposium on this blog in 2013.

This coming week, Steve will be introducing us to different aspects of his work, including current and future projects. We look forward to his contributions!
