Summary

You are possessed.

A being outside yourself has taken control of your mind, body, and soul. It commands you to do things against your will, and torments you with feelings of guilt and pain.

This being is not a demon, or a ghost, though it might as well be. This being is an ideal.

Your ideals, whether thrust upon you by society or adopted out of a sense of duty, your ideals put you in bondage and make your life miserable. They haunt your head, as sure as any spook could do.

In this classic work of philosophy, Max Stirner thinks he knows the way to escape your bondage, and to be truly free. Care to see what he has to offer?

This edition features a brand new foreword, giving an overview of Stirner's philosophy in contemporary language.
