Macat pricing explained

We want to help you discover the world of ideas that have shaped our society today. We have created different membership levels to match your needs whether you are starting on a personal journey or you want to bring Macat to your institution.

Here is what the Basic membership will offer you:

As a registered member you can get free access to the first layer of our analyses. This includes the Big Idea, introduction videos, key points, and citations of book analyses.

We will also keep you posted of new product releases and new ask-me-anything forums related to humanities and social science.

Unlock full access with the Premium membership:

In addition to the basic account features, as a premium member you will see all of our 10-minute-long analyses, which include the Mind Maps and Ways In, as well as the ability to create and share your own collections with fellow students, teachers, or your friends.

The full 3-hour long analysis will also be available to you. It gives you much detailed andcontextualized insight into the book, its author, and why the text and ideas matter. Your access to Macat Collections and Macat Masterclasses will also be unlocked. You can think of Macat Masterclasses like courses – but with the emphasis on everyday learning and really engaging formats. They offer you deep dives into topics that have always fascinated you.
