Philosophers’ Café

Thinking the unthinkable, imagining the impossible, and discussing the improbable

SFU’s Philosophers’ Café is a series of informal public discussions in the heart of our communities. Since 1998, this award-winning program has engaged the interests of scholars, seniors, students, philosophers, and non-philosophers through stimulating dialogue and the passionate exchange of ideas.

All Cafés are free to attend. No registration is required.


Due to concerns over COVID-19, all Philosophers' Café events have been suspended to help protect the health and safety of our community. We look forward to bringing the Cafés back soon.
