On Human Nature

"Finely written, compactly argued."--James Ryerson, New York Times Book Review

"Roger Scruton’s On Human Nature . . . gives a brief, poetic account of a way of thinking about ourselves that many of us, especially with a background in the humanities, will find congenial."--Adam Zeman, Standpoint

"I admire Roger Scruton's stance and I admire his writing. In this short book, he raises and discusses deeply important issues about the human world."--Simon Blackburn, author of Think: A Compelling Introduction to Philosophy

"A tour de force, this book presents an original and important view of human nature."--Anthony O'Hear, University of Buckingham

“On Human Nature is a tour de force of a rare kind. In clear, elegant prose it makes large claims in metaphysics, morals and, by implication, politics.” – The Economist
