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 Reader Store Edition of The American Scholar contains articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. Issues are published quarterly, 4 times per year.

2 . Great Magazine
Posted March 15, 2012 by Jill , Las VegasThis is a great magazine. It has interesting articles and is completely worth the money as it's about 200 pages. There's an article for almost every type of reader as well as a poetry section and what not. I highly reccomend this to anyone who needs a new subscription.
