The Ego and His Own: The Case of the Individual Against Authority

by: Max Stirner

Publisher: Dover ()


Staff Pick by comrade: Rudy

The literal translation being something along the lines of 'the unique and their property,' this book was a huge influence not only of Neitzche, but also on 'Individualist' strains of anarchist thought. Stirner uses his sexy dialectical prowess to argue his case, which, unlike much outdated anarchist programs, is still very much relevant to a sharp anarchist critique.
