It is through his recent book The Art Instinct – as well as Arts and Letters Daily that he is most known. However I first heard of him through what I think is one of his greatest¬†achievements, the New Zealand Skeptics.¬†Though he wasn’t as active as he was when he helped set it up in the mid 80’s he retained a skeptical mindset…for example take this cartoon he put on his personal website.

I’ll leave it to Carl Sagan, a Skeptic par excellence to deliver a eulogy of which I have no doubt Denis would enjoy.
