The Journal of Modern Wisdom is affiliated to the Philosophy Department at the University of Durham.
Ben Irvine (Editor) is a philosopher, writer, publisher and campaigner (www.benirvine.co.uk). He is editor of both the Journal of Modern Wisdom and Cycle Lifestyle magazine and is currently running the London Cycle Map Campaign, lobbying for a Tube-style map and network for cycling in the capital. His wider interest is in using philosophical insights to counteract tragedies of the commons in modern life, and promulgating wiser ways of living than those promoted by mainstream media – while encouraging more intellectuals to do likewise.

Dominic Tyerman (Technical Support) provides a service to a range of organisations – as a producer for Jazz FM, a webdesign and business support officer to E-Government Networks, and the tireless facilitator of Oldspeak Publishing's online presence.
Jon Haste (Illustrator/Designer) produces illustrations from his home in Stoke Newington, East London, under the name KOLB, and spends his time creating images for editorial work, bands and clothing. See more of his work at www.kolbillustration.com.
