Packed with challenging ideas, diversions and thoughtful reflections, The Critic pushes back against a self-regarding and troubling consensus that finds critical voices triggering, insensitive and disrespectful. Each issue carefully examines the world of politics, art, literature and ideas, and is designed for open-minded readers who appreciate honest criticism and a variety of intellectually stimulating material.


The Critic highlights that the point of honest criticism is to better approach the truth, not deny its possibility. Therefore, each issue aims to unpack political and cultural debates, diversions, opinions, and today’s current affairs in an earnest, honest and playful way.


Join a community of open-minded readers, stimulate your intellect and challenge your ideas with a digital subscription to The Critic. Get every single issue delivered directly to your device.
