Dr. Anthony M. Coyne,

Professor of Philosophy

Anthony joined USC Sumter in 1997.  He previously directed the Humanities Program at the University of North Carolina at Asheville.  He has taught philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, at Elon College, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Anthony has very wide ranging interests and in fact completed a mathematics major before his interests shifted into Philosophy.


Anthony loves teaching.  He has taught nearly every area of philosophy.  Years of teaching inductive logic led to the publication of a book Introduction to Inductive Reasoning.  He has presented numerous papers in philosophy of religion and in academic ethics.  He maintains his contact with mathematics by reviewing the latest publications in mathematical logic.


Personal interests include music (which he shares with his wife who is an organist and music teacher) and bicycling.  You will see him riding around town on a red road bike.  Please pass him carefully.  He is interested in making contact with others interested in early music. He is an accomplished recorder player (sopranino through bass) and would enjoy playing with others on an occasional basis.
