Dr. Donald Nute

I joined the faculty of the Philosophy Department at the University of Georgia in 1973 and later served for ten years as Head of the Department. I was the founding Director of the Artificial Intelligence Center, a member of the Linguistics Faculty, and Undergraduate Coordinator for the cognitive science major. I held visiting positions at the University of Tuebingen, the University of Stuttgart, and Antwerp University. My research and teaching have focused on philosophy of language, logic, automated reasoning, and knowledge-based systems. I was appointed Franklin College Professor at the University of Georgia in 2001, and retired in 2004. I continue to work on projects at the University. Most recently I have been working on defeasible justification in epistemology and normative theory and I have been co-teaching a short course in business ethics with Warren French in the UGA Executive MBA program. My non-academic interests include duplicate bridge, steam locomotives, and garden railroading.
