Is there a good OO Knowledge based systems package around???

I want a a programming language for the development of a knowledge based system, but it also needs to be Object oriented, can anyone help?

RE: Is there a good OO Knowledge based systems package around???

Java.  I don't feel really qualified to answer this question because for me, programming languages have never seemed differentiated by what they are good for.  Rather, they are differentiated by how a programmer thinks and how development proceeds.  Most good programming languages are now OO because OO-ness forces programmers to use better designs.

LISP is a good example.  It was created by AI people so, for programmers that think in a simple but highly structured way, it makes a lot of sense.  It was *intended* to be good for AI programming, but instead ended up being instructive to those interested in AI - kind of like the way an old beat-up car is instructive for highschoolers that want to learn mechanics, whether or not the car itself is a good piece of machinery.
