Remembering Anthony M. Ludovici
(January 8, 1882–April 3, 1971)

458 words

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. Last year, Counter-Currents issued Ludovici’s previously unpublished autobiography, The Confessions of an Anti-Feminist. An excerpt from it, “On the Jewish Question,” has been published on this site, and F. Roger Devlin has reviewed it in “A Man Out of Season.”

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. See Day’s essays:

I also wish to draw your attention to John Day’s extensive online archive of Ludovici’s writings.

John Day is also the editor of The Lost Philosopher: The Best of Anthony M. Ludovici.

The following excerpts from The Lost Philosopher are available on this website:

Other works on this site by Ludovici include:

Because of the renewed interest in Ludovici’s work, many of his writings have recently been reprinted and are available at

    Another Fascist “intellectual” psycho, who flatly promoted INCEST and inbreeding, in order to create a “new Aristocracy”!!… Even Hitler and Himmler themselves did not dare to go that far! I guess that’s something that millions of Trumpanzee Hillbillies would just relish: pathological, dysgenic inbreeding is rampant among them.

      I think you are lost. For the HuffPost please type “I enjoy my girfriend’s black strapon every night” in google, and then double click in the first result.

      Bon voyage!

      Lol, its honestly nice to see an unhinged retard make it all the way to this corner of the internet. Good job buddy. Guess that means CC is getting more mainstream traffic. I do have to agree somewhat with our mentally handicapped friend here.. i think ludovici does overstate the case for the aristocracy a bit. That said, his books are highly readable and quite interesting.

    Lovely oil portrait of AM which I haven’t seen before. Do you have any details on it?

      I bought it in 2019 from a fellow who found it in an estate sale in New England. I can’t make out the painter’s name.

    And on 12th of January we can remember the great Türkish/and Türkic poet, writer and nationalist Hüsseyn Nihal Atsiz (12.01.1905-11.01.1975). The fighter against Communism, the foe of Islam and the ideal father of both Party of Nationalist Movement (MHP) and of Idealist Movement (Ülkücü) aka Bozkurtlar (Grey Wolves).
