"But for a hundred years or more, Outsiders have been swinging the hammer, without consciously realizing what they were doing, and slowly creating new values by implication. Forty years after Hulme's death, we can begin to see the results of the hundred years of intellectual questioning. Hulme regarded his Speculations as a preface to Pascal's Pensees, but it would perhaps be more accurate to regard them as the epilogue of a certain indispensable body of Outsider literature, beginning with Dostoevsky's Notes from Under the Floorboards and including Steppenwolf, The Secret Life, Nijinsky's Diary and Mind at the End of Its Tether."--The Outsider (1956) by Colin Wilson
