We are the Rationalist Association, a 125-year-old charity dedicated to reason, science & secularism.
We publish New Humanist, a quarterly journal of ideas, science and culture.
Talented new writers, an elegant new design and thought-provoking content—delivered to your door.
The Rationalist Association is a registered charity, with a distinguished history and a growing global membership. Past members include Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell and Iain Banks. Why not add your name to that list and help pass reason on?
Today is our daily stream of news, views and comment from the Rationalist Association team. Simply, everything that’s on our mind today that we think should be on yours.
Never be lost for something to read with Play Dice, which randomly loads articles specially selected by our editors.
Perfect for your phone.
We write stuff because it needs to be written, and make it free for all, with no corporate sponsorship.
Our archive features hundreds of podcasts with guests from the godless world of science, the arts and entertainment, people like Jonathan Miller, Stephen Fry, Ann Druyan, Richard Dawkins, Isy Sutie and Simon Singh.
The Rationalist Association is independent, irreverent & non-profit. We are supported by our members.
