Psyche is a new digital magazine from Aeon, that launched on 18 May 2020. Psyche seeks to illuminate the human condition through three prisms: mental health; the perennial question of ‘how to live’; and the artistic and transcendent facets of life.
As with Aeon, Psyche disseminates knowledge from a wide range of expert perspectives. Psychology and philosophy are key, but Psyche also draws on history, anthropology and other disciplines. Psyche recognises that the human condition has always been illuminated by the imagination as much as by reason and practical knowledge, and will showcase poetic and artistic voices and perspectives.
Psyche is organised into three sections. Therapeia provides expert insights and practical help in dealing with emotional and psychological challenges. Eudaimonia focuses on thought-provoking responses to perennial questions about how to live well. Poiesis explores the imaginative, artistic and transcendent facets of life.
Psyche has three content channels: Ideas (short articles of 1,000-1,800 words) from experts and writers; Guides, which provide in-depth, expert-written, practical know-how; and Films, which showcase immersive short films. New content is published every weekday.
The need to elucidate the human condition is a universal one; the avenues to do so are endless. With a dedication to pluralism and openness, Psyche will seek out and share the most revealing perspectives wherever they might be found.
Psyche is published by not-for-profit, registered charity Aeon Media Group Ltd which is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) organisation in Australia and registered as a 501(c)(3) charity in the US through its affiliate Aeon America.
