From the ABC Website:
William of Ockham was an English monk, philosopher, theologian and
victim of the Black Death, who provided the scientific method with its
key principle 700 years ago. "What can be done with fewer assumptions
done in vain with more", he said. That is, in explaining any
we should use no more explanatory concepts than are absolutely
Well, for both broadcasting and for science, simplicity should never be despised. Our program, named after William, consists of a short introduction followed by a scripted talk. Just that, week after week.
This program allows thoughtful people to have their say without pesky interviewers interrupting, or someone of opposite views turning the exercise into a joust. There are times when a speaker needs a clear run, some proper control, and this is what Ockham's Razor provides.
