John Sutton is Professor of Cognitive Science at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, where he was previously Head of the Department of Philosophy. After a BA in Classics (Oxford) and PhD in Philosophy (Sydney), his book Philosophy and Memory Traces: Descartes to connectionism (Cambridge UP, 1998) developed a new history of embodied cognition. While he continues to work in the interdisciplinary cognitive humanities in collaboration with early modern literary and cultural historians, his research now focusses on memory and skill in the contemporary cognitive and social sciences. Sutton was a founding editor of the Sage journal Memory Studies, and co-edits Palgrave Macmillan’s Memory Studies book series with Andrew Hoskins. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Humanities, and president of the Australasian Society for Philosophy and Psychology. His current collaborative research aims to integrate conceptual, ethnographic, and experimental methods, and addresses personal and social memory, embodied memory and skilled movement, distributed cognition, and cognitive history.
