  • Marek Kohn is a British science writer on evolution, biology and society. His first two books were on drugs, their cultural history, and their politics. He is the author of seven books and hundreds of articles. He holds an undergraduate degree in neurobiology from the University of Sussex, and a PhD from the University of Brighton, where he is a fellow in the Faculty of Arts. His writing has appeared in The Independent, New Scientist, Prospect, Financial Times, and The Guardian, and he writes frequently for the New Statesman. Kohn's recent book, A Reason for Everything, has received widespread praise, including Steve Jones' stating in his Nature review "every evolutionist should read it," and Andrew Brown, author of the Darwin Wars, writing in his Guardian review, "one of the best science writers we have." In 1999, Kohn had proposed, together with the archaeologist Steven Mithen, the so-called "sexy hand-axe hypothesis." Following the publication of his name in a list of persons invited to participate in Steve Sailer's Human Biodiversity Group discussion pages, Kohn wrote to Lynn Conway to dissociate himself from many of the participants' scientific and political views.
