On Sundays between eleven and twelve o'clock the program Sternstunde Philosophie is broadcasted on Swiss television DRS SF1. This program is dedicated to philosophical topics in the broadest sense.

 

From 1994 to 2003 the programs were moderated by Erwin Koller and sometimes produced genuine great moments. The presentations of the contributors were structured by theses. All attendees could participate in the discussion. The goal was to gain insight, rather than a definitive confirmation or refutation of the theses. Erwin Koller used to close the programs with the following Socratic words:

 

"We have sought the truth. We have not found it. Tomorrow we continue talking”.

The theses-oriented discussion in Erwin Kollers Sternstunde Philosophie and the Socratic conclusion inspired the name and concept of the Socrethics website.
