Philosophy Now is a lively magazine for everyone interested in ideas. It isn't afraid to tackle all the major questions of life, the universe and everything. Published every two months, it tries to corrupt innocent citizens by convincing them that philosophy can be exciting, worthwhile and comprehensible, and also to provide some enjoyable reading matter for those already ensnared by the muse, such as philosophy students and academics.

Philosophy Now contains articles and features on all aspects of philosophy, as well as book reviews, film reviews, news, and the occasional short story. It attracts contributions by well-known thinkers, and regular columnists include Prof. Raymond Tallis ("Tallis in Wonderland"), Prof. Joel Marks ("Ethical and Other Episodes"), Dr Tim Madigan ("Food for Thought") and a philosophy of science column written by Prof. Massimo Pigliucci.

Since its launch 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.

This is a really great magazine - well written, informative, thought-provoking and often amusing. The pieces on the history of philosophy are good as well as the more current stuff.  And I love the current front cover (Obama and Plato ordering a pizza??) . I often buy this from news-stands here in London, and I would be happy to try reading it on my brand new Nook. But - and here's the but - so far I can only find it on the US Nook site and not on the UK one. Why is that? This is frustrating. Still, that is no reason for me to award less than 5 stars to this excellent mag.

First time I have ever read every piece in a magazine. Usually I read with the TV on in the background but this time I turned it off. I had to look up some words and I had to read some paragraphs twice but it was a wonderfully written and thought provoking.
