An independent magazine venturing beyond conventional wisdom

 
 

The Cleverness Biannual actively seeks complexity and ventures deep into philosophical paradox. It explores the darker elements of pioneering (an often lonely journey), providing a fuller spectrum of perspective outside of the success stories and hero-worship.

Be it business, philosophy or artistry, The Cleverness Biannual relishes in the hidden or overlooked. Inside: Art, poetry, tasting notes, and evergreen essay contributions from a carefully chosen mix of people whose minds captivate our own. These are thought leaders, artists, executives, purpose-driven leaders and other curious, kind and eccentric individuals from around the world.
