Web Secret 462: Aeon
Delivered in a variety of mediums, on a really beautiful website.
By thought leaders.
Of course you do. You want Aeon
Aeon is a digital magazine publishing some of the most profound and provocative thinking on the web. Asking the big questions and finding the freshest, most original answers.
Aeon has four channels. One is Essays – longform explorations of deep issues written by serious and creative thinkers.
Example: "A bug for Alzheimer’s?" - A bold theory places infection at the root of Alzheimer’s, explaining why decades of treatment have done little good.
The second is Ideas – short provocations.
Example: "There is nothing inevitable or natural about chronic disease."
The third is Video - streaming a mixture of curated short documentaries and original Aeon content.
Example: "Can writing an 11,000-page autobiographical thesis cure addiction?"
The fourth is Conversations inviting the reader to input their own arguments and points of view.
Example: "How does increased involvement of fathers in childrearing alter public perceptions of masculinity?"
Aeon - committed to big ideas, serious inquiry and a humane worldview.
