British-born philosopher Roger Scruton, once hailed as “the most influential conservative thinker since Edmund Burke,” 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).
