Marjorie Grene has passed away
I don’t think that I can say that I ever studied from Marjorie Grene, but I did study with her. She sat in on an Ancient Philosophy graduate class I took and came to the weekly Ancient Greek translation and reading group we had for a while in the philosophy department. She was a real spitfire in both arenas. Many people will remember her in philosophy for her contributions to the philosophy of biology, but I’ll remember her for her work in ancient philosophy and her work surrounding descartes. She was working on those topics most of the time that I knew her. She was a figure to be reckoned with and she will be missed.
