Keynote Address:
"Beauty and Desecration"
Roger Scruton

Focus of the Conference

"Beauty will save the world," writes Dostoevsky, yet beauty is seen by many as a weak and expendable arrow in the metaphysical quiver that includes the more robust good and true. Many think of beauty as a mere decoration of human life, a luxury rather than a spiritual necessity. There is indeed a great deal of Kitsch that masquerades as art, and it is not surprising if such "beauty" is not taken seriously. But authentic beauty can have the transformative, even salvific, effects that Dostoevesky ascribes to it.
