A new look at beauty

The philosopher Roger Scruton has opened windows for me and made me feel more interested in and enthralled by the world. I'm glad he has published a new book, but I'm wary, too, because it's about beauty and discussions of beauty often contrast "the high" with "the low" in class-conscious and tedious ways.

Hopefully that is not the case with Scruton. The National Post reviewer writes -

Scruton argues that "beauty challenges us to renounce our narcissism and look with reverence on the world."

Look with reverence on the world!

Howard wrote us today, "You need to view them as nature intended to see them, and smell them, at their best!"
