About this event

Sir Roger Scruton (1944-2020) was one of the most distinguished polymaths of modern times. His work ranged over philosophy, music and aesthetics to politics, religion and law. This inaugural series of free public lectures will honour his legacy by inviting eminent public intellectuals to speak on four topics within an overarching theme. The theme for 2021 is: ‘Nation and Civilisation’. Each lecture and conversation will take place in the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford between 5pm-6.30pm.
