Journals

What follows is a list of Individualist and Egoist journals. The overlap in writers was significant and at times writers wavered from one to the other. As we’re able we will put archives online of the journals, whether just indexes, excerpts, individual issues or complete runs. Some of the titles listed here are on speculation, as no actual copies of a few of them have been acquired by the UoE in any format, but we’re relying on bibliographic data, references in books, etc.

As the list grows it has become necessarily heavy with journals dedicated to individual freedom or liberty. There are so few solely egoist journals, and egoists did not write in a vacuum. We also do not restrict that survey to “anarchist” individualism, or ones that reject “natural rights”, but to any journal that puts the interest of the individual above that of the masses.

What constitutes an “egoist journal” is something that has been discussed among some of us, and we do try to make the distinction between an “Egoist journal” and a “journal by an Egoist”, and generally not include the latter below. That distinction isn’t always as clear as we’d like, for if all people are truly egoists, than any journal is an egoist’s journal. We look to John Basil Barnhill aka John Erwin McCall as an example. He was responsible for one of our favorite egoist journals The Eagle and The Serpent (1898), but also The American Anti-Socialist. The former is clearly, unarguably an Egoist Journal. The latter is pretty clearly detached from egoism in any explicit way, even though it is published by an advocate of Egoism.
