Anthony Mario Ludovici (1882-1971) was one of Britain’s most celebrated intellectuals during the first decades of the 1900s. After World War II he was not estimated no longer by the establishment and the victorious forces, because he so clearly and accurately criticized egalitarian values in all its expressions: liberalism, Marxism, feminism, and racial equality.

From the back cover:
Anthony M. Ludovici (1882-1971), the ”Edwardian Superman,” was one of the earliest and ablest translators and interpreters of Nietzsche´s thought in the English-speaking world. He was also a Nietzschean philosopher in his own right. In the early decades of the twentieth century, Ludovici enjoyed some renown as a fashionable defender of unfashioned ideas, but after World War II, he was consigned to oblivion by the intolerant defenders of egalitarian orthodoxy. The Lost Philosopher collects Ludovici´s thoughts on nine topics – Religion, Conservatism, Liberalism, Men and Women, Eugenics, Health, Education, Economics, and Art- in the hope that our times might make themselves relevant to Ludovici´s philosophy.

Alain de Benoist about the book:

”Of all unjustly ignored authors, Anthony M. Ludovici is certainly the one who today most deserves to be remembered. In his works, as imposing in quantity as in quality, this profoundly original philosopher never ceased to offer opinions on the most various subjects ( from religion and education to art, eugenics, and the relations between the sexes ) that are perfectly opposed to contemporary ’political correctness.’ Even those who will disapprove of his remarks will be able to recognice their present character. For collecting in this volume the most significant pages of Ludovici’s works, John V. Day without a doubt deserves the gratitude of all free spirits.”
