Alex Levine received his Ph.D. from the University of California , San Diego, in 1994. After teaching at the University of Puerto Rico and Lehigh University , he joined the USF Philosophy Department in 2005. Trained in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind, his current research interests include the philosophical importance of peripheral science (science outside Europe and North America), the "species problem" in the philosophy of biology, the "access problem" in the philosophy of mathematics, and embodied approaches within the philosophy of mind. Recent publications include two collaborations with Adriana Novoa, From Man to Ape (Chicago, 2010), and ¡Darwinistas! (Brill, 2012).  He has written a number of scholarly papers, and has also been active as a scholarly translator, with credits including Paul Hoyningen Huene's Reconstructing Scientific Revolutions (Chicago, 1993). He is currently the Editor of Perspectives on Science. He finds it weird to write about himself in the third person.
