J. M. Hinton

John Michael Elliott Hinton (July 4, 1923 - February 3, 2000[1]) was a British philosopher. He was a lecturer at the University of Oxford from 1958 and a fellow of Worcester College, Oxford from 1960.[1] He was Cowling Visiting Professor at Carleton College in 1978-79.[2] He was previously a lecturer at Victoria University College.[3]

Hinton is widely cited as the first modern proponent of the disjunctive theory of perception.[4][5] This view is set out in his 1973 book Experiences: An Inquiry Into Some Ambiguities,[6] and in some papers dating as far back as 1966.
