Summary
This book traces the concept of self through the work of Wyndham Lewis. It discovers at the heart of Lewis's work a tension between his assumption that the self is really almost no thing at all, and his perception that the survival of European culture--Western Man--depends on the stability and coherence of the self. Lewis's work is dominated by the conviction that industrialized society enslaves by fragmenting and destroying selfhood. In Lewis's mythography, Western Man is opposed to the Jewish "Split-Man," and Hitler represents the last stand of the West against Jewish-inspired liberalism and communism
