About this book

This book offers the first full-length study into the philosophical legacy of Roger Scruton, one of the most important British conservative philosophers.

Scruton’s philosophical interests encompassed art and politics and this book explores the intersections between these seeming disparate concerns. It also examines the philosopher’s fascination with Central European culture and considers his metaphysical intimations, connecting the arts with religion and the bonds of love.
