Launched in 2012, Aeon’s mission is to explore and communicate knowledge that addresses the need we all share to make sense of ourselves and the world.

We ask the big, existentially significant questions and find the freshest, most original answers, provided by leading thinkers on philosophy, science, psychology, society and culture.

Aeon’s content is completely free to enjoy:

Essays – longform explorations of deep issues, written by serious and creative thinkers

Video – a mixture of curated short documentaries and original Aeon productions

We are committed to big ideas, serious enquiry and a humane worldview. That’s it.
