Davis Baird’s Philosophy Pages

Davis Baird, Professor of Philosophy, Clark University

I am a Professor of Philosophy at Clark University where I served for 11 years as Clark’s Provost (2010-2021). Prior to coming to Clark I was a faculty member at the University of South Carolina (1982-2010), where I served as Dean of the South Carolina Honors College (2005-2010) and Chair of the Philosophy Department (1992-2005). My research has focused on the history and philosophy of science and technology, including the development of analytical instrumentation and nanotechnology. I am currently pursuing a project examining my grandfather’s writings; Earl Clement Davis (1876-1953) was a Unitarian minister from 1905 until his death, 1953.
