Stephen Law started out his career as a postman. He eventually discovered philosophy in his early twenties, applied to university as a mature student, and ended up at Oxford University where completed his Doctorate and was a Junior Research Fellow. Since then, Stephen has been teaching at Heythrop College, a small college of the University of London specialising in Philosophy and Theology.

Stephen is particularly well-known for his popular introductions to philosophy, including The Complete Philosophy Files (for children), and the prize-winning The Philosophy Gym: 25 Short Adventures in Thinking. He is editor of the Royal Institute of Philosophy journal THINK. He is also a well known humanist, and authored the Oxford University Press Very Short Introduction to Humanism. Law has debated many Christian apologists, theologians and scientists, including William Lane Craig, Alvin Plantinga, Alister McGrath, John Lennox and Denis Alexander. He can also be seen in discussion with Richard Dawkins on atheism and humanism here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W28Uo-O231E
