I can't believe that I never started a thread on Roger Scruton. So here's a good article of introduction from the pen of Sir Roger Scruton, philosopher and man of letters.

Edited: This link leads to a paywall. I forgot that I was a subscriber to The New Criterion. Many apologies. I'll make sure to post free articles in the future.

Seems an interesting read - to read it all, I have to sign up I take it.
May your death be soon, slow and painful

Damn, damn, damn.....I overlooked that, Tao. I forgot that I was a subscriber to The New Criterion. Apologies to all.

This following article is from Philosophy Now, which allows four free articles per month. Let's see if this link will work for awhile.....

A lot of Roger Scruton's articles are reprinted (for free) by The Imaginative Conservative. Here's one:
