At its heart, philosophy is about asking simple, even silly, questions of the sort you probably asked when you were a kid: What's it all about? Why is there something rather than nothing? Does time stretch infinitely backwards as well as infinitely forward? Sometimes these simple questions have complex answers and The Philosopher's Zone is your guide through the strange thickets of logic, metaphysics and ethics.

We’ll also look at the world as we now find it. Today’s complexities - bio-technology, relations between cultures, between species, rights, tolerance, security and more – might become clearer thorough a philosophical lens.

The Philosopher's Zone was pioneered by Alan Saunders who sadly passed away in June 2012. ABC Radio National has committed to continuing the program.

In 2013 the program will run in two seasons and will be presented by Joe Gelonesi, Alan’s long time editor and friend. Joe has spent the better part of a working life guiding projects rich in ideas and wide in appeal. His work in educational broadcasting has left a lasting influence home and abroad. Joe is humbled and honoured by the opportunity to pursue Alan’s vision.
