The American Scholar


A quarterly magazine for general circulation, The American Scholar is available to new ΦBK members at a reduced subscription rate. It has been published by ΦBK since 1932. When the Scholar received a National Magazine Award for General Excellence in the under-100,000-circulation category, the judges cited it as a “magazine of the mind, free of pretense and impeccably edited.” The Scholar has also won two National Magazine Awards for Feature Writing and one for Essays, the only quarterly to have won in all three categories.

The Scholar has published work by many of the world’s great writers, thinkers, critics,
and poets, such as Jacques Barzun, Saul Bellow, Albert Einstein, Ralph
Ellison, Robert Frost, Buckminster Fuller, Günter Grass, Thomas Mann,
Margaret Mead, and E. O. Wilson. Recent contributors include Marilyn
Robinson, Nicholson Baker, J. M. Coetzee, Mary Gordon, Cynthia Ozick,
John Updike, Ann Beattie and Garry Wills.
