The New Humanist

Full details  

We're a quarterly magazine of culture and science, published since 1885. New Humanist is for anyone who wants to understand the ideas, conflicts and systems shaping our world - climate, capitalism, technology, fundamentalism, struggles for equality and more. We publish a beautiful edition once every three months full of serious, intelligent essays and reportage. Subscribe to our print and digital editions.

New Humanist is published by the Rationalist Association, a registered charity promoting rational inquiry and debate based on evidence rather than belief.
