Congratulations to Blackfriars Senior Research Fellow Prof Roger Scruton on his knighthood.

'I feel grateful and encouraged to receive this honour for work that has in any case always been for me a reward in itself.'

Prof Scuton is a philosopher, public commentator and author of over 40 books. He has specialised in aesthetics with particular attention to music and architecture. He engages in contemporary political and cultural debates from the standpoint of a conservative thinker and is well known as a powerful polemicist. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a fellow of the British Academy.
