Reading Group: Stirner on Everything

20 Sep

READING GROUP:

stirner02PCPN is excited about our fall session Insurrectionary Subjectivities: Anarchism and Continental Philosophy. Why can’t anarchists draw straight lines? BECAUSE THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN RULERS. Don’t miss our meetings (almost) every Tuesday evening (8:00pm) at the Bloomfield Crazy Mocha.

This week:

  • 09/26 – Max Stirner, “My Ownness” in The Unique and its Property, pp. 222-258 (NEW TRANSLATION!@!!!!!)

Pdfs of the readings can be found: HERE

Please bring either a digital or hard copy of the text with you to the discussion.

Time: 8:00pm-10:00pm
Location: Bloomfield Crazy Mocha (4525 Liberty Ave).

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole section, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.
