Conservatism, as a political movement, is familiar. Conservatism as a philosophy, however, remains obscure. Attaining its modern form in reaction to the French Revolution, conservatism has been an intellectual-as well as a moral and political force for two centuries.

A concise volume of conservative authors and writings. I had read some of the selections before, but I especially enjoyed Scruton's own contributions, as well as a few thinkers I had never read before. Scruton's purpose was to make a text for students, perhaps some in other countries. So, he does not focus on any one tradition within conservative thought.

“If you ask a conservative for a statement of his political convictions, he may well say that he has none, and that the greatest heresy of modernity is precisely to see politics as a matter of convictions as though one could recuperate, at the level of political purpose, the consoling certainty which once was granted by religious faith. In another sense, however, conservatism does rest in a system of belief, and is opposed as much to the theory as to the practice of socialist and liberal politics.” 0 likes
