Host Jonathan Judaken talks with philosopher Roger Scruton, author of more than thirty books, including several novels, and the composer of two operas. 

Starting his academic career as a philosopher of aesthetics, Scruton emerged as a major voice for traditional conservatism in Britain, with The Meaning of Conservatism in 1980. He has published a steady stream of works explicating both modern philosophy and his brand of traditional conservatism since then.

His most recent book is titled How to Think Seriously About the Planet: the Case for an Environmental Conservatism.
