ABC on Quadrant

From the ABC website:

Hume in ‘Quadrant’, atheists in Melbourne

by Alan Saunders

You have to hand it to Quadrant.  For more than fifty years now – through many a change of style and politics – it has been our chief, and often our only, magazine of art, culture and politics.  It now has a strong rival in the form of The Monthly, but The Monthly’s focus is quite narrowly Australian (as I know, having written for them about Neighbours), whereas Quadrant takes the whole world as its subject.  You are not, for example, likely to encounter in the pages of The Monthly the eighteenth-century Scottish philosopher (the greatest philosopher, I think, ever to write in English) but you do in the latest [March] Quadrant, twice.
