Roger Scruton on beauty

I note some reviews of Roger Scruton’s recent On Beauty (OUP). Jonathan Ree reviews it in Prospect (March 2009), noting the tendency in Scruton’s work towards the jeremiad concerning contemporary culture, in which there is an implicit historical narrative of decline.

A review has also appeared in the Observer, and an extract in the Times, dealing with the ‘kitschification’ of religious art in particular. See also Scruton on the ‘flight from beauty’ in Axess
