Life generally refers to three American magazines:
- A humor and general interest magazine published from 1883 to 1936. Time founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936 solely so that he could acquire the rights to its name.
- A weekly news magazine launched by Luce in 1936, with a strong emphasis on photojournalism. Life was published until 1972, as an intermittent "special" until 1978; and as a monthly from 1978 to 2000.
- A weekly newspaper supplement published by Time Inc. from 2004 to 2007 and included in some American newspapers.
