Max Stirner is the bad boy, the black sheep of post-Hegelian philosophy. Often derided and dismissed, his philosophy of egoism and his powerful critique of the spooks of modernity have continued to resonate with those who are at odds with the world around them. In this brilliant book, Blumenfeld discovers that the ghosts of Stirner are alive and well, and that his message of nothingness and indifference speaks particularly to us today, living as we do at the end of history. Yet, as this book shows, rather than being the nihilist he is often characterised as, Stirner guides us along the path of a new ethical and political sensibility based on singularity rather than identity something urgently needed today. Blumenfelds original and heretical reading shows Stirners undoubted contemporary relevance. --Saul Newman, Goldsmiths University

I was someone completely new to Stirner and, to be honest, was revolted after glancing at The Unique and Its Property. But Blumenfeld's book opened my mind to Stirner's ideas and changed my life for the better. That's because Stirner is not just a philosopher thinking about the realm of abstractions, but someone who gave good practical advice on how live and think.
I won't get into all of Stirner's ideas and the author's interpretations of them, but this book helped free me. I grew up as a religious fundamentalist and, even following my falling out with it, I still struggled to think outside of the modes I acquired from that time.
This book, whether Stirner was right or not on all matters, showed me how to take my life back. It gave me a mental toolkit to own my life in a meaningful way. To refuse to be controlled by mere thoughts and other phantoms that haunt the alienated individual.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for something worthwhile. This is easily the best book I've read in a long time.
