    “Our greatest living conservative thinker.” —Daniel Hannan, author, journalist, and politician

    “One of the most eminent philosophers in the world.” —Robert P. George, Princeton University

    “The world’s greatest conservative thinker.” —Institute for Public Affairs

    “The greatest living conservative philosopher.” —The Spectator

    “A virtuoso in so many genres that it is almost impossible for any ordinary person to assess his accomplishments.” —Daniel Cullen, Rhodes College

    That is just a sampling of the praise for Sir Roger Scruton.

    And you can hear from him at ISI’s Fourteenth Annual Gala for Western Civilization on Thursday, September 19. Scruton, who lives in Britain, will be making a rare trip to the United States to accept ISI’s Defender of Western Civilization Award and address the gala.

    This is an incredible opportunity to honor, and learn from, the man widely regarded as the most important conservative thinker of our time.
