Top 5 of 2020: #3 – Roger Scruton on Beauty in a World of 'Uglification'

Our third most-listened-to podcast of 2020 featured British-born philosopher Roger Scruton, once hailed as “the most influential conservative thinker since Edmund Burke.” Mr. Scruton died Jan. 12, 2020, at the age of 75.

His books include The Meaning of Conservatism (1980, 2001), An Intelligent Person's Guide to Modern Culture (1998, 2005), and The West and the Rest: Globalization and the Terrorist Threat (2002).

Roger Scruton delivered this address at a lecture-and-discussion event titled "Beauty in a World of Ugliness" held at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. The October 2018 event was sponsored by the Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project

His remarks have been abridged slightly for this podcast.
