Edmund Burke (1729-1797) was a British political philosopher and member of parliament.  He is regarded as the founder of modern conservatism.  A champion of liberty, Burke advocated redress for the American colonists in their disputes with the Crown, and supported the aims of the American Revolution, but he was a early and eloquent opponent of the French Revolution.
