Confessions of a Heretic is a collection of essays by the influential social commentator and polemicist Roger Scruton.

In this selection, covering subjects from art and architecture to politics and nature conservation, Scruton challenges popular opinion on key aspects of our culture: How can we nurture real friendship through social media? Why is the nation-state worth preserving? How should we achieve a timely death against the advances of modern medicine? This provocative collection seeks to answer some of the most pressing problems of our age.

This revised edition includes additional essays and an introduction by Douglas Murray.

Roger Scruton is that rarest of things: a first-rate philosopher who actually has a philosophy. . . one of the few intellectually authoritative voices in modern British conservatism.
—Jesse Norman, The Spectator

Scruton is brilliant at the patient demolition, in sorrowful yet witty tones, of wobbly conceptual edifices.
—Steven Poole, The Guardian
