The Philosophers Magazine
features an interview with Roger Scruton
, an important contemporary philosopher who has written on subjects as diverse as modern philosophy, aesthetics, animal rights, Islam and the West, conservatism
, and popular culture, and sexuality. He has been a staunch defender of high culture, but has not rooted it in transcendent realities. See his book, The Intelligent Person's Guide to Culture
and Culture Counts
. However, this interview indicates that he may be moving back toward Christianity. One hopes.
