Overview

American Scholar

The American Scholar is the venerable but lively quarterly magazine of public affairs, literature, science, history, and culture published by the Phi Beta Kappa Society since 1932. In recent years the magazine has won four National Magazine Awards, the industry’s highest honor, and many of its essays and articles have been selected for the yearly Best American anthologies.

Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous speech, “The American Scholar”, delivered to the Phi Beta Kappa Society at Harvard College in 1837, the magazine aspires to Emerson’s ideals of independent thinking, self-knowledge, and a commitment to the affairs of the world as well as to books, history, and science.

The magazine is definitely high-brow intellectual in tone, but most of the articles focused on politics and general interest. There was not a single life science article in the issue I reviewed. I was disappointed in that.
