Kim Sterelny is a philosopher who was born and educated in Australia, and who has spent his working life in Australia and New Zealand, with occasional departures to England and America. His work has always been on the border areas between philosophy and the sciences, especially the life sciences. In the last decade, he has mostly worked on the evolution of the distinctive features of human social life and the cognitive capacities that support that life. Some of this work is reported in Thought in a Hostile World (2003) and The Evolved Apprentice (2012). His interests outside philosophy include natural history, cricket and red wine.
