Forum: Lady Helen Oppenheimer
Helen Oppenheimer, who died on April 6th this year, was one of the ‘gentlest giants’ in theology and philosophy after the Second World War. She had a remarkably incisive and creative mind which was combined with a most modest and gracious personality. To use one of her favourite adjectives, she was the most agreeable of people. She was part of that wave of post-war philosophers which included Richard Hare, Philippa Foot and Mary Warnock; and throughout her life she was also a quintessential Anglican.
