New Magazine Examines One Topic Through Science, Culture and Philosophy

Nautilus-logoNAUTILUS is a new quarterly magazine to be launched in September that weaves science, culture and philosophy into a single story, according to an article in FOLIO.

However, before launching a print publication, Nautilus is building an audience online. Each month the editorial team chooses one topic and each Thursday they post new articles on that topic, exploring it from different angles and through a variety of mediums, such as essay, investigative report, blog post, game, video, and even fiction or graphic story. Its inaugural issue is “What Makes You So Special.” Once the fall magazine is distributed, the website will be updated quarterly with new content, instead of weekly.

At its core, Nautilus is still essentially a science magazine. Its website describes the publication as big-picture science. “Nautilus lets science spill over its usual borders. We are science, connected.”

The magazine has received a financial grant from the John Templeton Foundation, which encourages dialogue among scientists, philosophers and theologians, and the general public.

This magazine is published by Nautilus Ventures, based in New York City. Michael Segal is the editor-in-chief, and story ideas and pitches should be emailed to
