It is the kind of a magazine I would recommend to students because we always say at the university that it is wonderful to read people you disagree with, people who may not be within the normal scope of your reading, and to have your own ideas and precepts sort of challenged by people -- as often the writers of The Fountain are -- who are experts in their own particular area. The authors of The Fountain tend to go into detail; they are not just philosophers. They go into, for example, scriptures of different major faiths or the history of different countries and organizations, and actually show how those facts and details are the bases of beliefs, not the other way around. I am astonished about the variety of contributors -- it is very rare today to get such a group of people from religious leaders to political leaders, to academics and historians, all the major components of intellectual life to contribute to the same venue. There are very few venues left where you can have that true meeting of minds, like The Fountain magazine."
