Sarah Jean Broadie (née Waterlow), professor of philosophy at the University of St. Andrews, has died.
Professor Broadie was well-known for her work in ancient philosophy, publishing several books and articles on Plato and Aristotle, often bringing ancient texts and ideas into contact with contemporary discussions in metaphysics and ethics. Her last book, published earlier this summer, is Plato’s Sun-Like Good: Dialectic in the Republic. You can learn more about her work here and here.
Professor Broadie joined the University of St. Andrews in 2001. Prior to that, she held positions at Princeton University, Rutgers University, Yale University, the University of Texas, and the University of Edinburgh. She did her graduate work at Oxford University (Sommerville College).
