"Since 1982, Orion has worked to reconnect human culture with the natural world, blending scientific thinking with the arts, engaging the heart and mind, and striving to make clear what we all have in common." I'm not sure what to make of these magazines... They are successful (in that they exist). Maybe something can be learned from them with respect to our efforts to effect change. In the several times I've looked at this one I haven't come across anything world-changing, but perhaps I'll pay more attention/ give it a more thorough look? I'm finding reading classics (currently Goethe, Faulkner, and criticism thereof) cheaper and more productive in terms of ideas generated per words read.
