Time and Western Man.
First edition, first issue (on heavier paper), of Lewis’s ‘single most important philosophical work’ (Morrow & Lafourcade).
Here Lewis dials back on the shortcomings of democracy that he had outlined in The Art of Being Ruled, instead arguing the virtues of individualism. Chapters are devoted to Pound, Joyce, Stein, Einstein and James.
