John Pickering
John Pickering, BSc DPhil is a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Warwick University.

After degrees in Psychology from Edinburgh and Sussex universities, Dr Pickering held appointments at Rochester and Stanford. He then returned to the UK to join the psychology department of Warwick University, where he still teaches. His overlapping interests include process thought, the comparison of Western and Eastern psychological traditions, ecopsychology, biosemiotics and cultural evolution. He is interested in postmodernism because he finds it useful as a framework for his various interests.
