    Stirner : The apparent flavor of the month.

    Post  Bakuninger on Sat Apr 21, 2012 10:31 am

    I don't know if any of you have noticed but Stirner has been popping up a lot recently on /lit/. Although i'm a fan, i have my own reservations. I do think that he anticipated a lot of thought which came after but was simply washed up and away after he died because of all the enemies he gained. Rather sad.

    Thoughts on the Egoist?

    I only have a very general idea of his thought from reading various summaries. If I wanted to get into him more, should I have read Hegel first in order to better understand what he was responding to?

    Sure but reading Hegel takes an enormous amount of dedication if you want to do the Science Of Logic route. I'd suggest Phenomenology of Spirit will be enough for understand what Stirner is parodying/harking on.

    You should avoid trashy philosophy and read neither Hegel or Stirner or pretty much any other French 'intellectual' or other continental philosopher.

    Continental philosophy is art. it's rich and expressive. Analytic philosophy is as dry as science. Fiction and myth teach us so much more than any propagandist appeals to 'reality' and does so in a way that reflects all our imperfections rather than trying to work round it or obscure it in some disillusioned attempt to rationalise.

    Yes, but what are your thoughts on Stirner?
