Summary
  • Ockham's Razor' is a wide-ranging and popular Radio National series that was born out of The Science Show.

Their themes explore contemporary social and philosophical issues in conjunction with recent research in areas such as health, agriculture, the environment, physics, genetics, mathematics and more. Many of the subjects introduced during the last five years have particular currency today while others are simply fascinating in their own right. Robyn Williams provides a lively, provocative and stimulating collection.
