Roger Scruton.

By the way, my post about beauty is informed by the brilliant work of British philosopher-aesthete Roger Scruton, a traditionalist conservative who authored the book Beauty in 2008. You’ll even see I have borrowed some of his language on the subject, which is impeccable (e.g. “transporting” as an adjective to describe encounters with great beauty). Below I’ve provided links to his work. I cannot recommend it strongly enough, especially if you are interested in art and architecture.
