Visitors to Arts & Letters Daily, the eclectic Web aggregator whose layout is inspired by 18th century broadsheets, can't help but find themselves swept into the world of ideas. Since 1998, founder and editor Denis Dutton, who died Dec. 28 at 66, connected readers to some of the most provocative and stimulating articles online. A philosophy professor at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, Dutton published The Art Instinct: Beauty, Pleasure, and Human Evolution in 2009.
