For public thinkers and the thinking public...

The Journal of Modern Wisdom has returned!

The much-anticipated second volume contains a new selection of diligently-written, accessible essays seeking to reassert the importance of wisdom in the modern world, all accompanied once again by exquisite illustrations from ‘Resident Artist’ Thais Beltrame.

Contributors to volume 2 of the Journal of Modern Wisdom (Oldspeak Publishing; 2013) include Theodore Dalrymple, Amitai EtzioniJules Evans, William Irwin, Nicholas Maxwell and Tom Barker, plus Editor Ben Irvine, poet Rebecca Watts, and an anonymous, high-ranking academic unleashing a glorious polemic against the philosophical establishment.

Addressing a cluster of topics traditionally neglected among the intelligentsia – such as self-control, self-help, community-mindedness and responsibility – the journal’s message is both radical and, deep-down, familiar, providing provocation and inspiration in equal measure.

For public thinkers and the thinking public, copies of the Journal of Modern Wisdom (volumes 1 and 2) are available for £4.99 from 

Read the journal; become wiser; encourage others; spread wisdom.
