Is this man worth reading /Leftypol(?
So far from a few quotes I have read from him and reading a little bit from wikipedia, he is picking my attention.

You should, especially since there's not much to read by him. You get nearly the entire Diogenes experience when you read Diogenes Laertius's short biography.

I read a book on sayings and anecdotes of him. He's interesting, by no means especially good at reasoning or wise. He's just a figure of interest more than any real philosopher.

He also lays a lot of sick burns on the other philosophers

That's a kind of silly thing to say, given that what Stirner preaches is essentially subjectivity.

This is what I read.

You realise that Marx took Stirner's rational self interest concept and ripped it straight out of Ego and Its Own in order to mix it with collectives and call it a day, right?

Why do you think Marx claims the state is acting in the interest of a class, or why he models classes as one? Because he claims they all have the same material interests.

The mature Marx barely (if at all) uses the term "individual" – his "science" takes as its starting point society as such. Read Althusser's For Marx

Liam Morris
Liam Morris

It means how it sounds. What does it sound like?

Stirner's book is an exercise in sarcasm, that is, it's a polemic against Hegelian logic and its claim to be able to unite the individual and universal.

Stirner rejects history and the notion of unification between universal and individual.

Caleb Peterson

the (economic) individual is a starting point of classical and neo-classical economics

Dylan Lopez

"barely uses the term individual"
Yes because as I say, he rips it off and applies it to material relations. So he claims that Proles acting in their rational self interest overturn capitalism.

There's a really good essay here:

Samuel Allen

Why did you think he spent 400 pages of German Ideology on him? He took something from every person he criticised in that book, of *course* he took from Stirner as well.

German Ideology is trying to show Stirner that if proles act in their self interest, it necessarily leads to communism. And Stirner actually thought of himself as a communist, according to certain followers.

And so the response to Stirner, the majority of the manuscript of The German Ideology is an attempt to prove that egoism must immediately “change into communism”, that “egoistic man” is bound to become “communist” out of egoism alone. But not only this. Engels: “But we must also adopt such truth as there is in the principle. And it is certainly true that we must first make a cause our own, egoistic cause, before we can do anything to further it – and hence that in this sense, irrespective of any eventual material aspirations, we are communists out of egoism also…” (1982: 12) Not only does egoism lead to communism, but egoism is the first cause of communism, its ground and foundation, that “irrespective of any material aspirations” makes us communists. Again from Engels: “We must take our departure from the Ego, the empirical, flesh-and-blood individual.” (1982:12)

“We must take our departure from the Ego, the empirical, flesh-and-blood individual.” (1982:12)

No, he does conflate them when it comes to politics. Of course he's not saying they are the exact same, but he argues that everyone acting in rational self interest is the same as revolution to liberate the proletarians.

Yes, of course, I just said that Engels wrote that they needed to move away from ego. But the idea that Marx didn't just repackage Stirner after getting triggered by him in order to try and save his ideas is nonsense.

Nathan Bell

how do you read this paragraph by Stirner:

"Not till one has fallen in love with his corporeal self, and takes a pleasure in himself as a living
flesh-and-blood person — but it is in mature years, in the man, that we find it so — not till then has
one a personal or egoistic interest, i.e. an interest not only of our spirit, e.g., but of total satisfaction,
satisfaction of the whole chap, a selfish interest. Just compare a man with a youth, and see if he will
not appear to you harder, less magnanimous, more selfish. Is he therefore worse? No, you say; he has
only become more definite, or, as you also call it, more “practical.” But the main point is this, that he
makes himself more the center than does the youth, who is infatuated about other things, e.g. God,
fatherland, etc."

Jaxson James

Not till one has fallen in love with his corporeal self
Absolutely disgusting bastardization of love.

Love is a truth-procedure in which two individuals create the means through which the two experience themselves as one.

I think it's based, and very similar to Works of Love (if you interpret Stirner correctly as the self being directly related to property)

One's relation to oneself (name it consciousness, self-reflection, whatever) is not the same as one's relation to a significant other with whom he constructs a common life.

"Self-love" imo is bourg ideology, taking the "economic individual" and raising it to the level of the sacred (as an absolutely distinguished something).
