Bakunin: Philosophy of Freedom

Brian Morris

 

The life and thought of Bakunin has contemporary relevance, particularly for his definitions of freedom.

This book confirms Bakunin as an important and influential political theorist whose anarchism was dominated by a desire to achieve a unity of theory and practice.

"Everything about him is colossal...he is full of a primitive exuberance and strength." -- Richard Wagner

He was not a conventional intellectual if anything, he was anti-intellectual and so never produced a systematic corpus of his ideas in the manner of Marx or Herbert Spencer. But his philosophy is by no means incoherent, and he fully deserves to be recognized as an important and influential political theorist.

That his anarchism was dominated by a desire to achieve a unity of theory and practice, of fact and value, of thought and action, within the reality of a given historical social order and that he opposed all the dualism which Western culture had bequeathed from mechanistic philosophy and bourgeois political theory particularly the opposition between individual and society, philosophy and empirical knowledge, nature and humans.

Brian Morris taught at Goldsmith's College, University of London and is the author of Anthropological Studies of Religion and Western Conceptions of the Individual.
