For the first time in its 12-year history, SFU’s Philosophers’ Café will be held at the Vancouver campus this fall. Program assistant Diane Mar-Nicolle says the new venue was prompted by requests from seniors who are taking classes during the day and enjoy the atmosphere of the downtown campus. She also anticipates that people working downtown will drop in for some lunchtime intellectual nourishment. Moderator Michael Picard, who teaches philosophy at Douglas College, has facilitated more than 500 cafés. Picard, who returns after a year’s absence from moderating, says he’s chosen "broad and accessible yet classic philosophical topics" for philosophical discussion. The Harbour Centre cafés will be held in Rm 2105 at 12 noon on Sept 9, Oct. 14, Nov. 18 and Dec. 9. Admission is $5. www.philosopherscafe.net.
