Dorion Sagan

Dorion Sagan is an award-winning author, co-author, contributor, and editor of over thirty books translated into some thirteen languages. His writings have appeared in The New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, The Skeptical Inquirer, Wired, Cabinet, Natural History, The Smithsonian, The Sciences, and Pabular, among others. His coauthored What is Life? was called “A masterpiece of science writing” in Orion magazine, and included on a list of “Mind-Altering Masterpieces” by Utne Reader. His most recent work, Cracking the Aging Code: The New Science of Growing Old, and What it Means for Staying Young, co-authored with theoretical physicist and aging expert Josh Mitteldorf, presents detailed evidence for a new theory of aging that replaces the evidence-impoverished (but generally accepted) free radical wear-and-tear theory, with an evidence-rich view that sees aging as an evolved adaptation against overpopulation. His other books include Microcosmos: Four Billion Years of Microbial Evolution, Cosmic Apprentice, Biospheres, Origins of Sex, What is Life?, What is Sex?, Death and Sex, Dazzle Gradually, and Into the Cool. Dorion is the eldest son of biologist Lynn Margulis and Carl Sagan. Dorion's essays and stories have appeared in Cabinet, Wired, and The New York Times, among others. ( Photo Credit: K. Kendall )
