[ȓə spek'teɪtə; englisch »der Zuschauer«], englische moralische Zeitschrift (moralische Wochenschriften), herausgegeben von J. Addison und R. Steele, die, an »The Tatler« anschließend, von März 1711 bis Dezember 1712 erschien (nochmals kurzfristig 1714) und große Beliebtheit erlangte. Zu den Mitarbeitern gehörten neben den Herausgebern A. Pope und Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Die Artikel des S. beeinflussten die Entwicklung der Essayistik und des Romans in England; sie beschäftigten sich mit Fragen von Sitten und Moral sowie mit Literatur und hatten die Verbreitung von Wissen für die wachsende mittelständische Leserschaft zum Ziel.
