I know that it is probably too late for anyone to even notice this, but Stirner's concept of the egoist is not Tautological, it is phenomenological. I.e., he is not promoting either an ethical or a metaphysical concept, but describing the phenomenon of individuals encountering their world, and whatever ethical or metaphysical baggage individuals may try to cover the phenomenological reality

On point 1:

Stirner's tautology can be expressed succinctly thusly:

"Because all persons - including altruists - do only those things which they themselves will (even when coerced or acting under false pretenses), then everyone is always an egoist."

Such a sentiment removes all meaning from the term--though this does appear to be Stirner's position.

i find, after a little thought, i'd like to tackle what are technical aspects of your response

'1. His concept of the "egoist" is tautological.'

i'm supposing you mean stirner uses a circular logic wherein the egoist defines what it means to be an egoist, without using an exterior or objective standard or definition against which to compare or contrast

i guess you're

"Your points are good ones, and I'll have to think on them for a while."

(((thank you! i try...)))

"I hope you'll keep an eye on the blog!"

(((of course! there are few places where i can discuss or debate egoism without things degrading to a mishmash...i look forward to anything i find here, on in nonserviam. --h.quirk)))

Henry,

Your points are good ones, and I'll have to think on them for a while.

I hope you'll keep an eye on the blog!

sorry for the delay in response...

being neither a historian or philosopher, i can't comment on what i view as the more technical aspects of your comments, but i can say this:

"3. His concept of the "creative nothing" seems to require a belief in a sort of radical free will that we simply do not possess. For example, do you really "own" the idea of lustfullness? Can you decide

h.quirk, sorry I've taken so long to get back to you on your question. I've actually been thinking about writing a long post on this topic. Now you've convinced me that I should.

In brief, however, here is a summary of my main problems with Stirner:

1. His concept of the "egoist" is tautological.

2. His thinking is pre-Darwinian. In complete fairness he can't be blamed

2006-10-20T16:20:00.000-04:00

'In spite of what I see as serious flaws in Stirner's thought...'

what flaws? stirner is constant and consistent...and right

Indeed, although in my defense I was looking for a quote, here.

That ought to count for something!

As a general rule, avoid verbatim searches. Search for keywords instead. (and even then searching may be utterly frustrating at times.)

2006-08-11T05:13:00.000-04:00

I stand corrected, although the most common phraseology you find for the quote is different enough to prevent finding it easily.

(or so I say to ease my fear of appearing dumb, here)

Italics not allowed?

The State's behavior is violence, and it calls its violence "law"; that of the individual, "crime."

The State's behavior is violence, and it calls its violence "law"; that of the individual, "crime."

No luck with the Google Site Search, either.

The quote is not Stirner!

I confess to not having that (a word doc version).

On the other hand, I did go through your version online doing an IE "find on this page" search and had no luck with that.

Your Google Search idea is a good one. I'll give it a go.

2006-08-10T08:30:00.000-04:00

I think the quote is genuine. Have you tried using a search engine on the online versions (use site:.nonserviam.com in Google, for instance), or searching a Word document on your PC? (Don't tell me you don't have Der Einzige as a file!)
