Feel like there is a gaping hole for content that is intellectually stimulating among existing print media, underestimating their readers’ capacity to reason and their curiosity about the world around them?
Look no further.
Seneca, speaking on the shortness of life says: “It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realise that it has passed away before we knew it was passing.”
“Life is long if you know how to use it.”
The aforementioned quotes convey the quintessence of New Philosopher’s DNA.
Approachable in nature and with a thoughtful and intelligent tone, New Philosopher caters to those who have not studied philosophy, as well as the inducted, mixing the voices of established luminaries with its host of writers.
As the team behind New Philosopher practices what it preaches, there is no reliance on established media organisations or any other companies - it is ad-free and solely funded via subscriptions and sales at bookstores and news agencies.
Based on the success of New Philosopher, the team behind the project have also recently started a second ad-free magazine for women called Womankind, aimed at smart women in the market, which quickly eclipsed New Philosopher covering art, psychology and social matters.
