Overview

Excerpt from European Dramatists

The supreme goal of the great literature of our era has been and remains the expression, in some form of final artistic denotement, of the struggle of the ego at self-realization. This recurrent note in the eternal symphony of life rings out again and again in the authentic, harmonic intuitions of the supermen of contemporary thought, philosophy and~ art. This dionysian searching after the divine in the human, this headlong struggle for the exaltation of the individual soul to the heights of superhuman conquest and super-moral ethics, is the sign-manual of the dmmonic dissonance and spiritual chaos of to-day. That free and daring individualist, philo sophic progenitor of Nietzsche and contemporary anarchism, Max Stirner, repudiated the claims of the species in behalf of the ideal of Man, the individual. The realization of man as the generally human was abandoned for the sake of the realization of man. As the anarchic unit of life. I am my own species, Without law, Without model such is the clamant individualism of Stirner.
