Max Stirner | Bibliography

This bibliography page for Max Stirner has been disorderly for some time. I have finally compiled a simple but complete (to my knowledge) bibliography of Stirner’s writings. I have the date published, the German title and an English translation (even if rough). I have pulled the previous, incomplete information, and will slowly integrate all that information back in, in a uniform manner. I am indebted to Bernd Kast and his exhaustive work hosted at the Max Stirner Archiv Leipzig. – Kevin I. Slaughter
