Facing Up to Darwin

By Roger Scruton from the February 2012 issue

There is a philosophy of the human condition that stands apart from biological science without opposing it.

It is fair to say that “Darwin’s dangerous idea,” as Daniel Dennett has described it, has caused more trouble to the ordinary conscience than just about any other scientific hypothesis. We cannot easily reject the theory of evolution, which explains so much that we observe in the lives of plants and animals; and we cannot easily accept it either, when it comes to understanding human beings. It is not only the religious world-view that seems so precarious in the light of it. All kinds of moral aspirations, set against what we can know or surmise about our hunter-gatherer ancestors, seem to be so much wishful thinking. How can we entertain the liberal hope for equality between the sexes, for universal human rights, for a global community without wars, when we reflect on the harsh conditions in which our species is said to have evolved, and for the need, in those conditions, for belligerence, relations of domination, and an innate division of labor between woman and man?

‘Green Philosophy’ with Roger Scruton | 13.03.2012

In Green Philosophy, Roger Scruton argues that conservatism is far better suited to tackle environmental problems than either liberalism or socialism. He contends that the environment is one of the most urgent political problems of our age, and sets out principles that should govern our efforts to protect it. The current environmental movement often fails to see that the environmental problems are generated and solved by ordinary people. Scruton argues that success in tackling environmental degradation comes from “national or local schemes to protect territory recognized as ‘ours’”.

Roger Scruton will be speaking about the ideas in his new book, Green Philosophy: How to think seriously about the planet, and taking questions.

Roger Scruton is a writer and philosopher. He is currently Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, Oxford, visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC, and visiting Research Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of many books including The Uses of Pessimism (2010).

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
