Project Introduction

This project was initiated on July 28th, 2017 and announced October 25th of the same year. It is a robust online edition of The Ego and His Own by Max Stirner, as translated by Stephen Byington. Benjamin Tucker’s 1907 edition will serve as a basis, but many additional materials will be continually added as the project progresses.

Most importantly is to:

  • make the work easily accessible in an attractive manner
  • collect important commentary and materials otherwise scattered or unavailable online
  • illustrate and notate the work in a useful manner to the casual reader and scholar alike

Because much of the writing in the “Front Matter” section was created to stand by itself to introduce the work it prefaced, there will certainly be quite a bit of repetition of basic biographical and other information from one to another.
