Anthony Mario Ludovici, (January 8, 1882 – April 3, 1971) was an English philosopher, Nietzschean sociologist and social critic. He is best known, perhaps, as a proponent of aristocracy, and in the early 20th century was a leading British conservative author. He wrote on subjects including metaphysics, politics, economics, religion, the differences between the sexes, race and eugenics.
