The main purpose of this research is to explore the thoughts of British philosopher Roger Scruton in the scope of aesthetics. Scruton was particularly influenced by Kant's project of critique of rational faculties, and Wittgenstein's insights into the realm of language and meaning. For this purpose, the steps he has taken in the development of analytic aesthetics (in two parts of judgment of beauty and beauty areas) have been extracted. This study was conducted using first-order library resources using conceptual analysis method. According to Scruton, aesthetics is the core of philosophy and is more important today than other branches of philosophy, even if it is dependent on other branches because of this central discipline. The most important results of this study are the reconstruction and application of two concepts of Disinterested interest and Means-End dualism, The elementary platitudes in aesthetics (pleasure, rank, attention, reason / judgment, description of object and first-hand judgments of beauty), the relationship between sacred, beauty and desires in human beauty, distinction of understanding and explanation in natural beauty, practical reason in everyday beauty and differentiation of fantasy-imagination and pattern of belonging or fitting in artistic beauty.
