Max Stirner

Johann Kaspar Schmidt (1806–1856), better known as Max Stirner, was a leading proponent of individualist anarchism. Stirner’s main work is The Ego and Its Own (Der Einzige und sein Eigentum, 1845).


”…advocated, not only a complete revolt against the state and against the servitude which authoritarian communism would impose upon men, but also the full liberation of the individual from all social and moral bonds – the rehabilitation of the ‘I’, the supremacy of the individual, complete ‘amoralism’, and the ‘association of the egotists’.

– Peter Kropotkin, ”Anarchism”Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition
