Thom Scott-Phillips

Research Fellow, Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, Durham University

I study the cognitive and evolutionary foundations of the human mind and human culture. I have published many academic articles in high-profile, peer-reviewed publications, and have received multiple awards and prizes for my research, including the New Investigator Award from the European Human Behaviour and Evolution Association in 2011. My first book, Speaking Our Minds, was published in November, and has been called "the most important and best book ever written on the evolution of language".
