Oren Harman was born in 1973. He grew up near the Jerusalem forest, and, for some years, in New York City, where a local newspaper dubbed him "the little Israeli magician" for his exploits in soccer. After receiving a doctorate from Oxford University, Oren became a professor of the history and philosophy of science, and an award-winning writer.

 

His book, "The Price of Altruism," won the 2010 Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. His latest book is "Evolutions: Fifteen Myths that Explain our World" by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Oren's books have been translated into many languages, including Chinese, Turkish, Japanese, Polish, Italian, Korean, Hebrew, and Malayalam.
