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

One of the earliest 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, plus countless essays and reviews, 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.

When Ludovici died in 1971, he directed that some of his estate be used to publish his autobiography, The Confessions of an Anti-Feminist. For reasons unknown, his wishes were not honored, and his autobiography languished in obscurity for almost half a century, until now.

In The Confessions of an Anti-Feminist, Ludovici discusses his family, upbringing, education, and his friends. He retraces his intellectual development and summarizes the ideas of his principal works. And he recounts his meetings with a host of remarkable men, including British Nietzschean Dr Oscar Levy, publisher A. R. Orage, spiritual teachers G. I. Gurdjieff and P. D. Ouspensky, posture teacher F. M. Alexander, author G. K. Chesterton, and, on a visit to Germany, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, and other leading figures of the Third Reich.

The Confessions of an Anti-Feminist is required reading for Ludovici scholars and intellectual historians. But it will reach a much wider audience, because it is an ideal introduction to the life and works of a thinker who is more relevant than ever as liberalism sinks deeper into crisis and inegalitarian, anti-feminist, and nationalist ideas are resurgent.

About the Author

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

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 40 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.

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, multiculturalism, crass commercialism, a debased popular culture, and the denial of innate and unalterable biological differences between individuals, the sexes and the races.
