I like this man's scholarship and erudition. Although his lecture is a few years old (October 2015), his main topics are just as relevant today. (As an art student, I was particularly pleased that he mentioned the reemergence of realist art schools trending in the U.S., and particularly Juliette Aristides of Seattle.) It's all very interesting.

Thanks for posting that video link. It's getting damn rare to see anyone in British academia who's willing to stand up in defense of the values that are the foundation for their own small nation's amazing accomplishments over the last half millenia as well as that of the West as a whole.

But doing so has it's risks - you're probably familiar with the vile character assassination that's been recently attempted against Scruton - if not, read about it here.

Thanks for that. Appalling.
