Alan Saunders Lecture

Alan Saunders 1954 - 2012 was a prominent philosopher, food writer, and radio broadcaster.

'Alan Saunders was a prince among broadcasters. Of all the journalists I've ever met, he had the deepest love of, and also understanding of, philosophy, and his passion for ideas made doing a program with him a highlight of one's year -- even long distance by phone, and even more in person in the studio. What he brought to public discussion was priceless'.
 - Martha Nussbaum, University of Chicago

In recognition of his enduring work, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, in association with the Australasian Association of Philosophy presents an annual Alan Saunders Memorial LectureThe lecture aims to spread the joy of philosophy and make it accessible to the wider public.
