Abstract: Most political philosophers have argued that Stirner's concerns are compatible with those put forward by Hegel and by those influenced by Hegel. However, there is good reason for disputing this view and for understanding Stirner as an original thinker whose ideas in some ways anticipated the concerns of contemporary post-structuralists.
