Santiago Beruete (1961) holds a degree in Anthropology and a doctorate in Philosophy. He has lived in the island of Ibiza for more than 25 years, where he combines his teaching and research activities with literary creation. He wrote his own collection of poems, short stories and novels, worth of different national and international awards. His works Jardinosofía: Una historia filosófica de los jardines (2016), Verdolatría: La naturaleza nos enseña a ser humanos (2018) y Aprendívoros: El cultivo de la curiosidad (2021) are the result of cross-pollination between gardening, literature, philosophy and education. Is the garden, which acts as a visual metaphor of a good life and a cultivated mind, that presides over this series of works, and it ends with the recently published Un trozo de tierra (2022).
