New Philosopher

Womankind

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 - an independent quarterly magazine devoted to exploring philosophical ideas from past and present thinkers on ways to live a more fulfilling life, born out of a culture nestled in mindfulness, self-reflection and simple living, aiming to guide readers into living a happier and freer mode of existence.

Approachable in nature and with a thoughtful and intelligent tone, New Philosopher caters to those who have not studied philosophy, as well as philosophy students and academics, mixing the voices of established luminaries with its host of writers.

The mission statement of the new philosophers is to introduce philosophical ideas that challenge contemporary thought and conditioning by questioning our thoughts and evaluating if aspirations are truly ours.

A publication that is dedicated to introducing its readers to the illuminated minds in the world on perspectives rarely heard – covering the technological society, consumerism, happiness, the war on your mind, an extraordinary life and ideas to change your life.

As the team behind New Philosopher practices what it preaches, there are no affiliations to big media 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.
