Why Beauty Matters

If you have an hour to spare over the Thanksgiving holiday, consider watching this 2009 documentary, “Why Beauty Matters,” presented by British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton (1944–2020). With great intelligence and sensitivity, plus his trademark acerbic wit, Scruton lays out the case that beauty is an objective reality, and shows how the modernist deconstruction of art, architecture, and music continues to have a deleterious impact on us all. 

Roger Scruton was a treasure, and is sorely missed. RIP.
