'Now we have been delivered from the Law': Thoughts towards a genealogy of anarchism
MetadataShow full item record
What would a genealogy of anarchism reveal? No doubt many diverse and discontinuous themes. Here I foreground just one of these themes, but one that, however distant it might seem, remains a sine qua non of the radical's cause. I suggest that although anarchism, as a modern political philosophy, stands opposed specifically to the modern state and its laws, it is able to mount this critique thanks to an ancient tradition of Gnostic- apocalyptic thought that looked to the passing of this world and the coming of a new one.
