About the Journal

The Philosophy Student Union Undergraduate Journal is committed to cultivating the creative and intellectual growth of philosophy students at Simon Fraser University. We recognize that philosophy is not simply the process of understanding our world but also encompasses the creation of meaning. We also acknowledge that the interests of our undergraduates are not limited to the analytic tradition. The journal is designed to allow undergraduate philosophers from all walks of life to develop their professional skills as writers and encourage unique perspectives in philosophical discourse. 

We also recognize that such discourses are not exclusive to academic philosophers; rather, philosophy is a subject that informs many academic disciplines. Because of this, we encourage interdisciplinary participation in our journal to develop a deeper relationship between philosophy and academia at large. With this goal in mind, we strive to heal the common stigma that philosophy lacks relevance and encourage more people to consider how philosophy can benefit their own academic goals. Regardless if you are a student enrolled in education, political science, language, cultural studies, economics, critical studies, indigenous studies, or something different, we welcome your unique insights at the philosophy journal, and we encourage your participation.
