Philosophy Now is a magazine for everyone interested in ideas. It aims to corrupt innocent citizens by convincing them that philosophy can be exciting, worthwhile and comprehensible, and also to provide some light and enjoyable reading matter for those already ensnared by the muse, such as philosophy students and academics.

Philosophy Now appears every two months. It contains articles on all aspects of Western philosophy, as well as book reviews, letters, news, cartoons, and the occasional short story.

Since its small-scale launch in Britain in 1991, Philosophy Now has grown to become the most widely-read philosophy periodical in the English language. Philosophy Now is independent of all groups and has no intentional editorial bias except for a passionate conviction that philosophy is a Good Thing.

Not a bad app.

I only subscribed for IOS, so I don’t have the issues others have mentioned. The app itself is very minimalistic. It’s not a very savvy app, technologically, by any means. But its format is easy to navigate and even allows for text-to-speech on IOS. For the content of the magazine, the quality fluctuates as all “pop” *insert topic* magazines tend to do. On the whole, I find little to complain about.

Two subscriptions?

From what I can tell, you have to purchase a subscription for the app even if you subscribed on a desktop. If this is the case, it’s pretty barbaric.

Philosophy Now app

Are the publishers aware that a separate (paid?)subscription is necessary for the app, apart from desktop subscription? First time I have encountered this payment plan.
