The Edmund Burke Society


Welcome to the Edmund Burke Society

Welcome to the website of the Edmund Burke Society of America.

Here you will find information about the society and its schedule, access to the society’s journal, Studies in Burke and His Time, extracts from our former newsletter Reflections, together with scholarly materials and articles on Edmund Burke.

The society is dedicated to the study, interpretation, and application of the life and thought of Edmund Burke. Its guiding principle is that the substance of Burke’s political thought should remain the subject of vigorous discussion and debate, and that an interest in his thought and in its significance historically and for us today is sufficient qualification for association. Through its activities and publications, the society seeks to present the perennial insight and wisdom of Edmund Burke to a new generation as a salutary guide for action, reform, and renewal.
