Report: Meeting of Edmund Burke’s Club (Australia) Inc. 7 February 2014


A Commentary on Edmund Burke: Philosopher, Politician, Prophet

The meeting of Edmund Burke’s Club at the Savage Club, Melbourne, on 7 February was largely taken up by Gerard Wilson’s commentary on Part One of Jesse Norman’s  recent book, Edmund Burke: Philosopher, Politician, Prophet. The commentary was twice as long as the normal presentation which, the President said, could not be avoided because of the material to be covered. Despite the length of the presentation most people found a full coverage Burke’s life and political career interesting and said they were looking forward to the text being posted on the EBC website. The text is now posted: A REVIEW Edmund Burke Philosopher, Politician, Prophet
