About The Atlantic

The Atlantic captivates the nation with brave thinking on the urgent issues of our time. With a commitment to be “of no party or clique,” it follows no single agenda or trend but rather seeks to illuminate ideas that are new, fresh—and first.

Founded in 1857, it has evolved into a multimedia must-read, offering pioneering insights into the worlds of culture, politics, business, technology, literature, and the arts. Its ideas are born in print, online, and at events, and then proliferate throughout social media, fueling conversations and inspiring the country to think again.
