Brill's Companion to Anarchism and Philosophy


Despite the recent proliferation of scholarship on anarchism, very little attention has been paid to the historical and theoretical relationship between anarchism and philosophy. Seeking to fill this void, Brill’s Companion to Anarchism and Philosophy draws upon the combined expertise of several top scholars to provide a broad thematic overview of the various ways anarchism and philosophy have intersected. Each of its 18 chapters adopts a self-consciously inventive approach to its subject matter, examining anarchism’s relation to other philosophical theories and systems within the Western intellectual tradition as well as specific philosophical topics, subdisciplines and methodological tendencies.

“Es zeichnet – bezogen auf Philosophie – wissenschaftlich souverän, sehr informativ und gut lesbar anarchistische Horizonte nach. Auffallend ist der abwägende Gestus: ohne verzweifelte und verzweifelnde Attacken gegen einen sogenannten Neoliberalismus, aber auch ohne romantischen Utopismus.” — Olaf Briese, Berliner Debatte Initial 29.2 (2018)
