Abstract: Zabrodsky's Lemma says: Suppose given a fibrant space $Y$ and a homotopy fiber sequence $F\to E\to X$ with $X$ connected. If the map $Y=\operatorname {map}(*,Y)\to \operatorname {map}(F,Y) $ which is induced by $F\to *$ is a weak equivalence, then $\operatorname {map}(X,Y)\to \operatorname {map}(E,Y)$ is a weak equivalence. This has been generalized by Bousfield. We improve on Bousfield's generalization and give some applications.
