Vale Sarah Broadie

Aug. 26, 2021

The Department of Philosophy is sad to report the passing of our former colleague and friend Sarah Jean Broadie earlier this month.

Broadie was a member of our faculty from 1993-2001 and was the second woman appointed to a senior position in the department (preceded only by Margaret Dauler Wilson in 1970). She left Princeton in 2001 for the University of St. Andrews (Scotland) where she spent the next two decades.

Broadie specialized in ancient philosophy, metaphysics and moral philosophy and was widely recognized as among the top scholars in Greek philosophy in the world and an expert on Aristotle.  Among the many honors she received during her distinguished career, Brodie was appointed Officer of the British Empire (OBE) in 2019 for her services to scholarship.
