The 2022 Scrutopia Summer School programmes were a huge success. We so enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones too. We are grateful for the wonderful feedback received and are pleased to share some of the memories.
"A very, very heartfelt "thank you" to Sophie and Izzy for the absolutely fantastic 10 days - wow! That word is the best way I know to describe it. Honestly, it was one of the best social and intellectual exercises of my life. I will never forget it, and all of the lectures have provided endless opportunities for additional thought, research, writing, and reading." Reggie, USA.
“The Scrutopia Summer School was the best experience of my life. It was so wonderful to meet and learn with, and from, such wonderful people, all of whom shared my passion for Philosophy, Art and Culture.” Mitch, England.
“The Scrutopia Summer School was outstanding, whereby we could learn and know more about Roger Scruton’s ideas and thoughts more deeply. I cannot ignore the friendly networking, which helped to understand better the different discussions.” Fernando, Argentina.
