The Mackayan Name

the mackayan –

The name of this online magazine is taken from the name Mackay, the organisation which runs this publication: Houghton & Mackay. It is essentially a play of words, which has turned it into a noun.

The etymology of the name is a homage to the grounded, matter of fact, steadfast approach often associated with the Scottish Mind. This lends itself to our articles, as we debate perceptive angles and present arguments to the audience under the tagline, Perceive the World.

Through these thought provoking articles, our readers are encouraged to think about well known ideas differently.
