David Butler was born in Tamworth, Australia, before relocating to the University of Queensland in Brisbane to study religion and psychology. Whilst teaching basic and advanced courses in psychology, he obtained his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2013. He has published in, and been a reviewer for, several psychological journals, such as Trends in Cognitive Science. He currently lives in Kyoto with his dog, Elvis, as a Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, where he is researching the developmental and evolutionary origins of prejudice.
Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, David has authored Four Questions on Visual Self-recognition: Development, Evolution, Function, and Mechanisms, which was developed from his PhD thesis.
David describes the experience of publishing his thesis with Cambridge Scholars:
“Cambridge Scholars have been fantastic collaborators in producing my book 'Four Questions on Visual Self-recognition: Development, Evolution, Function, and Mechanisms'. Rather than appearing as separate papers in various journals, here was an opportunity to present my work as a whole as I originally envisioned. From the initial communication regarding the publication of my PhD thesis to the day I received my personal hard copy of the finished product, they were helpful, practical, and, above all, polite. Busy as I was, being able to make my own timeline and receiving patient understanding when required meant that publication was a non-stressful event. In short, Cambridge Scholars Publishing gave me the pleasant means of fulfilling my ambition to produce a piece of writing that I hope may be of some benefit to those who need it. Now if I can only produce enough material to do it all over again!”
