Alan Levinovitz received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy and religion from Stanford University, and his doctorate in religion and literature from the University of Chicago. His research and writing uses concepts taken from religious studies to analyze people's beliefs about non-religious topics, ranging from dietary practices to artificial intelligence. His current book project, “One Nature Under God: How To Love the World Without Hating Ourselves,” will be published by Beacon Press, and argues that making the natural world sacred cannot happen without making room for human nature.
