Remembering Anthony M. Ludovici:
January 8, 1882–April 3, 1971
Anthony Mario Ludovici was born on January 8, 1882.
Ludovici was 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. In nearly forty books, including eight novels, and hundreds 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.
A passionate, principled defender of aristocracy and conservatism and a fierce, uncompromising critic of egalitarianism in all its manifestations, Ludovici was consigned to obscurity after the Second World War.
But in recent years, through the power of his thought and the promotional efforts of John V. Day, Ludovici’s writings have found a whole new audience.
In commemoration of Ludovici’s birth, we are publishing “Anthony Ludovici: Conservative from Another World,” originally published in Instauration.
See also John Day’s “What is Best Will Rule: Anthony Ludovici on Aristocracy and Democracy.”
I also wish to draw your attention to John Day’s extensive online archive of Ludovici’s writings: http://www.anthonymludovici.com/
