Twentieth-century politics has been dominated by "big ideas" - communism, fascism, central planning, many kinds of collectivism . These big ideas have tended to clash with the realities of human nature and have often led to death, poverty and misery in varying proportions. This volume of essays seeks to place realism at the core of the conservative agenda. The present disarray in conservative circles suggests that a redefinition of conservatism is timely, and each essay studies key areas of philosophy and policy with the notion of conservative realism to the fore. All the contributors are leading political thinkers and commentators with international reputations. John O'Sullivan looks at the question of British cultural identity, whilst Noel Malcom reveals the highly complex nature of the relationship between European Christian democracy and conservatism. Irving Kristol points to the differences between American and European conservatism, arguing that it is religion which undergirds American conservatism. Richard Griffiths examines Europe and the question of conservative identity. Turning to economics, Ray Evans argues that a constitutive illusion of radical politics is that the economy can lead to monetary recklessness, whilst David Willetts demonstrates that markets on the one hand, and civil society or community on the other, have a long history of intertwining and mutual stimulation, and shows that the division between the selfish egoism of the market and the benign altruism of community has been left for dead.

8. Conservatism [1990]

Book
255 p. ; 22 cm.
An analysis of conservatism in which the author discusses whether the conservatives are in favour of reform but against change. He asks if it is the political tradition that defends freedom above all and what is its moral worth? The adversaries of conservatism - traditional liberals, democratic socialists and Marxists have elaborated their own beliefs, fought amongst themselves and disdained Conservatism. They have not found their way by analysis to a true understanding of the politics that was given its first and greatest expression in Edmund Burke's masterpiece of invective "Reflections on the Revolution in France", and has most recently issued in the evangelism of the New Right. Honderich contends that Conservatives for their part have not only refused to sum themselves up but have made it a principle not to reduce their politics to a principle. The author's most recent book is "A Theory of Determinism".

Since the electoral successes of several conservative governments in 1979, conservative ideas and politics have been placed at the centre of the political agenda of the liberal democracies for the first time since 1945. This book studies the experience of a number of representative conservative parties in Europe and the United States. It explains the success of conservatism since the 1970s by examining the political cultures, the characteristics of particular parties or forms of conservatism, and the social bases of conservatism in particular countries.

First published in 1980, The Meaning of Conservatism is now recognized as a major contribution to political thought, and the liveliest and most provocative modern statement of the traditional conservative position. Roger Scruton challenges those who would regard themselves as conservatives, and also their opponents.
