Rupert Read/ Roger Scruton
Listen to the recording here
In his new book Green Philosophy, Roger Scruton outlines a conception of effective environmental activism that he regards as internal to conservative politics. However, he also regards the approach he defends as congenial to certain forms of left environmentalism. He calls for ‘a new alliance’ that can help heal the left/right rift in our culture. In conversation with Rupert Read, these ambitions are put to the test.
