Denis was a very rare example of a man equally at ease in both culture and science. He was a the nearest thing there was to a New Zealand polymath. It is very hard for me and my spouse to live with the knowledge that we will neither hear his voice nor see his face again. Our deepest condolences to Margit, Sonya, and Ben, who did an outstanding job of conducting his funeral.
My deepest sympathy goes to the family and friends of Denis Dutton and the bible is a good source of encouragement one scripture is Ecclesiastes 9:5.
To the the family of Denis Dutton - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that Denis will be missed by many.
Arts & Letters Daily is a towering Internet achievement. We mourn the loss of Denis Dutton.
I got to know Denis when I was at the U.S. Embassy in Wellington from 2003-2006. One of my greatest joys was to get together with him whenever I visited Christchurch just to talk about whatever was on our respective minds. I will always treasure those conversations. My deepest condolences to Margit, Sonia and Ben.
