Coleridge Lectures 2017: Edmund Burke’s Revolutionary Life and Work

Jesse Norman Studio Portraits
Fri 16 June 2017,

Philosopher, statesman – and the first modern conservative – Edmund Burke fought a lifelong struggle against the abuse of power. His controversial mixture of conservative and subversive ideas made him first celebrated, then marginalised and finally a revered political figure and hero of the Romantics. It’s impossible to understand the defects of the modern world, or modern politics, without him. Jesse Norman talks about Burke’s revolutionary life and work and what this means today.

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE FOR THIS EVENT HAS CHANGED TO THE PEEL LECTURE THEATRE.
