Traditionalist conservatism, also stated to be known as classical conservatism and traditional conservatism, possibly problematic terms as conservatism in general state support for the value of traditions, may refer to ideologies stated to have been more formally developed in response to the Enlightenment and associated radicalism and violence, in particular by Edmund Burke, but the supported traditions and principles are viewed as older, often based of natural laws and natural order.

The term(s) may have more specific meanings in different countries. Leftist Wikipedia claims that in the United Kingdom, it has associations such as Roger Scruton and a faction of the Conservative Party, while in the United States, it refer to a form of conservatism, not stated how to differ from paleoconservatism, but differing from British forms such as by not being monarchist.
