The Ego and His Own: The Case of the Individual Against Authority
In this classic work of libertarian thought, a brilliant 19th-century German thinker presents a well developed case against all supra-individual authority. Stirner’s manifesto of individualism and radical political anarchism is a savagely penetrating critique of liberalism and socialism, and of all religious and ideological constraints on freedom. All political, state, church and social structures, he argued, are based on empty ideological and religious concepts.
The impact and persuasive power of this fervently anti-authoritarian book has endured for more than a century and a half. Karl Marx regarded Stirner’s work with such hostility that he attacked it with a ferocious 400-page polemic.
James J. Martin, who edited, introduced and annotated this edition, commented: “The Ego and His Own is the most formidable assault on authoritarianism ever launched. Nothing distracts Stirner from his pursuit of the exposition of freedom for everyone, not just for himself. No one has surpassed Stirner in dealing with these two aspects: individualism, whence it stems and where its logic goes.”
