Common Sense was a left-wing theoretical magazine published in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1987. It ceased publication in 1999. The creators of Common sense attempted to be minimalist in its production.

Common sense was the journal of the Edinburgh conference of Socialist Economics . The magazine produced articles along the lines of Open and Autonomist Marxism including articles from Italian autonomist marxists and featured some of John Holloway's earliest writings on the Zapatistas. It attempted to draw on the Common Sense school of Scottish Philosophy.

Well known leftist writers within those tendencies like John Holloway,Harry Cleaver, Toni Negri ,George Caffentzis,Werner Bonefeld,and Richard Gunn wrote for the magazine.

John Holloway presented one essay he had contributed to the magazine at the Conference of Socialist Economics on 27 January 1990 on the topic of the Poll Tax.

It has influenced current debates in Marxism, Autonomist Marxism, Open Marxism and broader politics and has helped build an Autonomist Marxist current in scottish left wing thought with particular interest in John Holloway, Silvia Federici and Toni Negri.
