Tucker, The book was banned shortly after its publication in the mid-nineteenth century, fell into oblivion, was re-published between and , then again in Striving to make a classic out of controversy, in , Reclam Publishing House released the original text in its entirety as part of their Universal Library series. Lifting these shackles has an obvious link to anarchy, which may be what his editors were so fearful of in the subsequent generations in which his text reemerged.
Stirner is transformed into a toddler recounting a fairy tale: he hits the landmarks of the narrative and illuminates the fruitless obsession with self-fulfillment. Dense areas of pronouns render an imagined climax of an argument. Ich mich I myself appears often as a compound, leaving the reader to speculate whether it is declarative, defensive, or a determination of responsibility. As the punctuation is stripped of its function, the fact that the reader is missing something that renders conclusions incomplete and impossible is accentuated.
There are twenty-one completely blank pages where the ego sinks into oblivion.
Pupils widen as Ich I jumps off the page like popping corn. What little is known of his life is mostly due to the Scottish-born German writer John Henry Mackay, who wrote a biography of Stirner Max Stirner — sein Leben und sein Werk , published in German in enlarged , and translated into English in His father died of tuberculosis on 19 April at the age of When Stirner turned 20, he attended the University of Berlin, where he studied philology, philosophy and theology.
He attended the lectures of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, who was to become a source of inspiration for his thinking. Stirner then moved to the University of Erlangen, which he attended at the same time as Ludwig Feuerbach. Stirner returned to Berlin and obtained a teaching certificate, but he was unable to obtain a full-time teaching post from the Prussian government. While in Berlin in , Stirner participated in discussions with a group of young philosophers called Die Freien The Free Ones and whom historians have subsequently categorized as the Young Hegelians.
Some of the best known names in 19th century literature and philosophy were involved with this group, including Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Bruno Bauer and Arnold Ruge. Contrary to popular belief, Feuerbach was not a member of Die Freien, although he was heavily involved in Young Hegelian discourse. Feuerbach and Bauer led this charge….
Max Stirner — is best known as the author of the idiosyncratic and provocative book entitled Der Einzige und sein Eigenthum The historical impact of The Ego and Its Own is not easy to assess. His curiosity excited, Mackay, who is an anarchist, procured after some difficulty a copy of the work, and so greatly was he stirred that for ten years he gave himself up to the study of Stirner and his teachings, and after incredible painstaking published in the story of his life. Let us name two: Henrik Ibsen and Friedrich Nietzsche.
Though the name of Stirner is not quoted by Nietzsche, he nevertheless recommended Stirner to a favorite pupil of his, Professor Baumgartner at Basel University. This was in A man was born there whose name will be green when Jean Paul and Richard Wagner are forgotten. All fire and flame at that time for Nietzsche, I did not realize that the poet and rhapsodist had forerunners. Like Like.

Higgins, The Age of German Idealism, p, Routledge,  While discussion of possible influence has never ceased entirely, the period of most intense discussion occurred between and in the German-speaking world. During this time, the most comprehensive account of Nietzsche's reception in the German language, the 4 volume work of Richard Frank Krummel: Nietzsche und der deutsche Geist indicates 83 entries discussing Stirner and Nietzsche.
The only thinker more frequently discussed in connection with Nietzsche during this time is Schopenhauer, with about twice the number of entries.
The Ego and Its Own by Max Stirner
Discussion steadily declines thereafter, but is still significant. Nietzsche and Stirner show 58 entries between and From to there are 28 entries regarding Nietzsche and Stirner. Still more obvious, the library shows us the extent and the bias of Nietzsche's knowledge about many persons to whom he so often refers with ad hominem statements in his published works. This includes not only such important figures a Mill, Kant, and Pascal but also such minor ones for Nietzsche as Max Stirner and William James who are both discussed in books Nietzsche read. However, he notes: "It is this intensive nuance of individualism that appeared to point from Nietzsche to Max Stirner, the author of the remarkable work Der Einzige und sein Eigentum.
Stirner's influence in modern Germany has assumed astonishing proportions, and moves in general parallel with that of Nietzsche. Yet, the similarities are too striking to be explained away. The philosophical learning of an author is not assessed by the number of quotations, nor by the always fanciful and conjectural check lists of libraries, but by the apologetic or polemical directions of his work itself. In adopting Stirnerite egoism , Tucker rejected natural rights which had long been considered the foundation of libertarianism.
This rejection galvanized the movement into fierce debates, with the natural rights proponents accusing the egoists of destroying libertarianism itself. So bitter was the conflict that a number of natural rights proponents withdrew from the pages of Liberty in protest even though they had hitherto been among its frequent contributors. Thereafter, Liberty championed egoism although its general content did not change significantly. Vernon Rosario pp. New York: Routledge, Stuttgart: Reclam-Verlag, ff; engl.
