Verso is proud to announce the 8th set of our Radical Thinkers series. The latest set of books includes classic works from Gillian Rose, Etienne Balibar, Shiela Rowbotham, Jean Baudrillard, Edward W. Said and others.

“A compendium of left-wing philosophical and political thought, inoculating it against the ‘great idea’ of philosophy-as-self-help. As a way of transforming… formless disgust into educated critique, these books are a fine, cheap and decidedly elegant starting point.” Owen Hatherley

“Verso’s beautifully designed Radical Thinkers series, which brings together seminal works by leading left-wing intellectuals, is a sophisticated blend of theory and thought.” Ziauddin Sardar, NEW STATESMAN

Max Stirner

MAX STIRNER – EDITED BY SAUL NEWMAN

My new edited book on Max Stirner, which has just been published in a new Palgrave series: Critical Explorations in Contemporary Political Thought. This is the first ever edited book on the proto-poststructuralist thinker Max Stirner, and it will hopefully go some way to rehabilitating this much neglected figure.

The contributors are: Ruth Kinna, Paul Thomas, Kathy Ferguson, Riccardo Baldissone, David Leopold, Widukind de Ridder, and myself.

Here is the blurb about the book on the Palgrave website: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=483235

PUBLISHER’S OUTLINE:

Max Stirner was one of the most important and seminal thinkers of the mid-nineteenth century. In the shadows of Hegel, Stirner developed possibly the most radical and devastating critique ever of the discourses of modernity, incurring the ire of Marx, prefiguring Nietzsche, and having a major (though often unacknowledged) impact on diverse streams of thought, from existentialism to anarchism and autonomism, literary and artistic avant-gardes, and postmodern theory. This edited volume investigates Stirner’s impact on critical thinking and social and political thought, exploring his radical and contemporary importance as a political theorist. In unmasking the religiosity lurking behind discourses of humanism and rationalism, and the domination of the individual immanent within liberal modes of politics, Stirner demolished the ontological foundations and universal grand narratives of our modernity. His thought has implications for contemporary questions of ideology, power, subjectivity, ethics and action, and opens the way for entirely new forms of politics.
