  • Sir Roger Scruton to speak on loyalty and how it shapes our culture

    Thursday, 10 May 2018

    Join us on Thursday 10 May when we welcome Sir Roger Scruton, a respected philosopher, public commentator and author to deliver a Road to Character lecture on loyalty.

    Loyalty is the fundamental virtue on which we all depend for survival - family loyalty, which protects children when they are young and adults as they age; loyalty to institutions and customs, which ties society together, and loyalty to the state and the sovereign power, without which no nation can survive for long. Sir Roger Scruton shall reflect on this culture and the habit of mind that gives rise to it, and propose ways in which we might return to the loyalties and attachments on which our country will always depend, in the last analysis, for its survival.
