I am Senior Researcher in the Social Mind Center, as part of the department of Cognitive Science at Central European University, Budapest.
I study the links between cognition and culture, working between disciplines; not just psychology and anthropology, but also linguistics, philosophy, and evolutionary biology.
My first book, Speaking Our Minds, was published in 2014. I’m currently working on the second one. It will be aimed at a broad, general (non-specialist) audience.
Previously, I did my undergraduate education in Maths (University of Sussex); my postgraduate education in Linguistics (University of Edinburgh); and from 2012-2017 I worked in Anthropology at Durham University. I have been awarded several awards for my research, including the Outstanding Doctoral Research prize from the British Psychological Society, and the New Investigator Award from the European Human Behaviour & Evolution Association.
I’m affiliated with the International Cognition & Culture Institute, where some super people blog and comment on the latest research on evolution, minds, and culture.
In my spare time I dance the lindy hop. Avidly.
My email is scott-phillipst at ceu dot edu, and I am on twitter, @tscottphillips.
