Brooke Holmes

Brooke Holmes is a professor at Princeton University in the Department of Classics. Her research interests lie in the history and philosophy of concepts, specifically in the behavior of concepts about the physical body, nature and life in ancient Greek and Roman textual sources and the problems these concepts create for attempts to theorize the subject and forms of ethical and political agency. She is equally interested in the long and tangled reception of these concepts and problems, especially in twentieth and twenty-first century continental philosophy.
