The Philosopher's Zone

At its heart, philosophy is about asking simple, even silly, questions: the sort of questions 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.

But as well as looking at the world of philosophy, The Philosopher's Zone will also look at the world through philosophy. Today fundamental and perplexing issues - risk assessment, bio-technology, our relations with animals, relations between cultures, the question whether a society can be open, tolerant and, at the same time, secure and the Zone will look at what philosophical analysis can contribute to our understanding of these issues.
