Is There a “Self” Left to Talk About? A Reply to Ash P. Morgans
Ash P. Morgans has a lengthy critique of the contributions made by a number of “moralists,” including myself. And in reading their response I realized that what I thought I had written—a relatively short piece with a narrow-focus—was, in fact, a confused mess. This doesn’t mean I now disagree with my arguments: I still think…

Bloody Rule and a Cannibal Order! Part III: The Nothing
Written originally as notes for the Egoist and the Anarchist, consider this final essay as a kind of postscript where I hope to challenge what I see as a problematic line of thinking present throughout this symposium: a tendency I’ll call phrase-making. Countless modes of thought, from metaphysics to political discourse, rely on “phrases,” i.e.,…
Melawan Kanibalisme Moral
Jason Lee Byas. Teks aslinya berjudul “Against Moral Cannibalism” dan merupakan bagian dari  C4SS Mutual Exchange Symposium on Anarchism and Egoism. Diterjemahkan ke Bahasa Indonesia oleh Iman Amirullah. Seperti yang Stirner maknai mengenai istilah tersebut, Aku bukan lah seorang egois.

Egoisme dan Kekristenan
Alexander W. Craig. Teks aslinya berjudul “Christianity and Egoism” dan merupakan bagian dari  C4SS Mutual Exchange Symposium on Anarchism and Egoism. Diterjemahkan ke Bahasa Indonesia oleh Ameyuri Ringo. Saya mulai menulis artikel ini pada Rabu Abu. Pada hari ini, banyak orang Kristen berpuasa, hanya makan satu kali, dan memulai disiplin Prapaskah, berpantang dari segala sesuatu…
Hristiyanlık ve Egozim
Okumak üzere olduğunuz makale, Alexander W. Craig tarafından kaleme alınmış ve Faruk Pak tarafından Türkçe ’ye çevrilmiştir. 22 Mart 2022 tarihinde “Christianity and Egoism” başlığı altında yayınlanmıştır. Kül çarşambasında bu satırları yazmaya başladım. Bugün çoğu Hristiyan oruç tutar, sadece bir öğün yemek yer ve bir Büyük Perhiz disiplininin gerektirdiği gibi zevk alınan bir şeyden uzak…
Christianity and Egoism
I began writing this on Ash Wednesday. On this day, many Christians fast, eating only one meal, and begin a Lenten discipline, abstention from something enjoyed. Over time, various Christian traditions have recommended different Lenten practices, but all who observe Lent do so by giving something up until the Friday before Easter. Can a religion…
La autoridad de uno mismo
Jason Lee Byas Artículo original: The Authority of Yourself, publicado el 18 de febrero de 2022. Traducción española de Camila Figueroa. Este ensayo es parte de un Simposio de Intercambio Mutuo del C4SS sobre Anarquismo y Egoísmo. Lo que he dicho hasta ahora presenta un dilema sobre cómo los anarquistas deben abordar la moralidad. Si…
Transhumanism and Egoism
I’ve been called upon to give a transhumanist perspective on egoism. I think that this is a pretty simple critique so I’m going to largely spend this piece talking about why egoists should take it seriously. If you’re already convinced of the importance of thinking rigorously, please just skip my self-indulgent rant and go to…
Beyond Egocentrism, Towards Egoism
“Man is the last evil spirit or spook, the most deceptive or most intimate, the craftiest liar with honest mien, the father of lies.” – Max Stirner, 1844 (2017: 129) Beyond Egocentrism When the heliocentric model of the universe was proposed in the 16th century, it was an enormous scandal. The pope eventually condemned Galileo…
Egoism, Morality, and Anarchism Under Complexity
Jason Lee Byas has already articulated what I think is an interesting (and effective) challenge to Max Stirner’s critique of morality, as well as come to a conclusion that I very much endorse: namely, that self-interest and caring for the well-being of others need not be separate concerns. In my view, the most important contribution…
La anarquía es el orden moral

Este ensayo es parte de un Simposio de Intercambio Mutuo del C4SS sobre Anarquismo y Egoísmo La anarquía es el orden moral Como argumenté en mi post anterior, cualquiera que se…
A Dialectical Rand for an Egoist Anarchism
I wanted to thank Cory Massimino for inviting me to submit a few thoughts on the topic of this important C4SS MES exploring the interrelationships between anarchism and egoism. Given the broad areas highlighted for conversation, I’d like to focus briefly on these two topics: What does egoism have to say about intersectional approaches in…
The Authority of Yourself
What I’ve said so far presents a dilemma for how anarchists should approach morality. If my first post is correct, we can’t ignore Stirner’s challenge. A morality that refuses to answer the amoralist requires systemic self-sacrifice with nothing in exchange. Such moral cannibalism would differ from other forms of domination only in its pervasiveness. Yet…
Anarchy is Moral Order
Anarchy Is Moral Order As I argued in my previous post, anyone who cares about morality needs a good answer to the amoralist challenge posed by someone like Stirner. As I also said there, this is especially true for those moralists who are also anarchists, since a morality without such an answer begins to look…
Against Moral Cannibalism
As Stirner means the term, I am not an egoist. I see morality as crucial, both to anarchism and to life in general. However, I think Stirnerite, amoralist egoism gets something very right about morality that most people get very wrong. In the next couple of posts, I’ll be saying more about why I reject…
The Eco- and Our Home
The prefix “eco-“, as in ecology and economy, is rooted in the ancient Greek “οἶκος”, translated as “house,” “home,” “shelter,” or “habitation.” Our home, (the home that we all currently share in common: our planet and its biosphere), is the focus of this essay — even as the title is an irreverent and playful response…
The Social Ecology of Egoism
The philosophy of Max Stirner (1806-1856 C.E.), or Egoism as it is sometimes crudely called, essentially addresses the relationship between the individual and alienation; to use Stirner’s language, the alienation between the individual and their property. Property can be interpreted in different ways, such as the common understanding of it as something owned, but also…
Communities of Egoists
Anarchism and egoism have long shared a tension that follows all anarchist groups: how do we organize in a way that respects individual autonomy while providing the benefits of collective organization? The work of organizing is often the constant answering of this question: how much does this organization benefit me, and why should I provide…
