Note: This expanded E-Book edition of The Lost Philosopher contains a 10th chapter, “Hitler, and Jews,” of nearly 15,000 words, that was suppressed from the print edition. The chapter contains Ludovici’s recollections of his visits to the Third Reich and extensive excerpts from his book The Jews, and the Jews in England.

Anthony Mario Ludovici (1882–1971) was one of Britain’s most celebrated intellectuals in the first decades of the twentieth century.

One of the first and most accomplished translators of Nietzsche into English and a leading exponent of Nietzsche’s thought, Ludovici was also an original philosopher in his own right.

Without a graduate degree or university professorship (indeed, without any need of them), Ludovici went over the heads of academia and directly addressed the educated public, supporting himself entirely by his writings.

In nearly forty books, including eight novels, and dozens of shorter works, Ludovici set forth his views on metaphysics, religion, ethics, politics, economics, the sexes, health, eugenics, art, modern culture, and current events with a clarity, wit, and fearless honesty that made him famous.

After World War II, however, Ludovici fell rapidly into obscurity. Why? Because Ludovici was a passionate, principled defender of aristocracy and conservatism and a fierce, uncompromising critic of egalitarianism in all its manifestations: Christianity, liberalism, Marxism, socialism, feminism, multi-culturalism, crass commercialism, a debased popular culture, and the denial of innate and unalterable biological differences between individuals and races, as well as the envious hobbling of the gifted and the sentimental coddling of the mediocre and botched.

Thanks to this volume, however, the lost philosopher has been found again, and far from seeming antiquated, his ideas are even more radical, relevant, and challenging in our day than in his own.

  1. Paul says:

    Is anyone going to publish Ludovici’s memoirs? Ever?

  2. Paul says:

    It would seem that extracts are being published with no plans to publish the whole book. I suppose the publishing of such a book may not be financially viable as the previous ‘Lost Philosopher’ collection has been such a poor seller. After all, no-one knows who Ludovici is. Apart from a few oddballs, like myself, who bought the previous book when it came out.
