Der Einzige (1919)

During the early interwar years, individualist anarchism reached its point ofmaximum intellectual sophistication. One locus of such high intellectual complexitywas the weekly  Der Einzige , which appeared in 1919 and was edited by twooriginal German thinkers, Anselm Ruest (Ernst Salomon) and Salomo Friedlaender/Mynona.  Because of the unpopularity of individualist anarchist ideas in thetwentieth century there are few books that have examined it, and even fewer havegrasped its intellectual richness. Little has been written on  Der Einzige. So far,the journal has been discussed by two authors, only briefly and only historically, and not for the sake of uncovering its relevance within the individualist anarchistmovement. In Left-Wing Nietzscheans, Seth Taylor reads Der Einzige , as the titleof his book suggests, as part of an effort to reveal the way Nietzsche’s conceptsfertilized those of the Left. Mainly a Striner scholar, Taylor develops ideas similarto those articulated by  Der Einzige  around the concept of postanarchism.
Though Dieter Lehner’s  Individualanarchismus und Dadaismus  (Individualist anarchismand Dadaism) is thoroughly documented, it is not concerned with drawing a profile of the publication. To a certain extent, the book does aim to emphasizethe post-World War I transformations of individualist anarchism, but Lehner’smajor concern is to highlight the way in which Anselm Ruest and Friedlaender/Mynona provided the Dada movement with philosophical and literary models.
