The Conservative Mind at Sixty—in St Andrews

Nash, Bentley and WillettsAnnette Kirk and several friends and Wilbur Fellows traveled in October to Saint Andrews, Scotland, as part of the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of publication of The Conservative Mind. Alvino-Mario Fantini has written an article for The American Conservative about the remembrance there. The trip included tours of the university and visits to sites important to Russell Kirk, including Kellie Castle, where Dr. Kirk resided and wrote many of his books. Several photos from the trip have been posted to an album on our Facebook page.

The twentieth-century conservative is concerned, first of all, with the regeneration of the spirit and character—with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at the highest.
