Reading for 1/8

For Tuesday it’s the first 50 pages of the “My Intercourse” section of The Unique. Or so I’m told. Hope you all had a pleasant enough holiday however you may have spent it.

Reading for 1/1

2019 is a new year. Like 2018, it will in all likelihood be another shitty one. Philip K. Dick thought the world was pretty shitty. Philip K. Dick is not a new author. Next week we’re reading PKD.

The empire never ended.

Reading for 12/18

Bring your own reading week! Bring one to 5 passages, sentences, or very short stories from any piece of writing that you consider mind blowing and conversation worthy. Alternatively, come with a question you wish to discuss with the group.

Reading for 12/11

Stirner! All of section 2.2.1 My Power.

[Anarchist Library Link]


Next week we’re reading some of Kafka’s (very) short stories:

  • Poseidon (478)
  • The Bridge (449)
  • The Problem of Our Laws (482)
  • Fellowship (480)
  • The Helmsman (490)
  • On Parables (506)

From the postscript of the linked collection:

Albert Camus once said that “the whole of Kafka’s art consists in compelling
the reader to re-read him.” Since the interpretations of Kafka are many and the search
for the meaning of his stories seemingly endless, the reader will return to the story
itself in the hope of finding guidance from within. Thus a second reading will —
hopefully — become a commentary on the first, and subsequent readings will — again
hopefully — shed light on the preceding ones.

This reading could be very quick, or very long, depending on how many times you choose to re-read.

Reading for 11/27

Tomorrow we’re beginning the second part of The Unique and Its Property, starting at section 2.1 and stopping at 2.2.1 (“My Power”, pg. 198 in the UE edition). This second part is the real meat of the book and comprises more than half the text, so with the holidays imminent, we’ll probably also discuss our plan for finishing this reading over the next month or two. Apologies for the late update this week, hope to see you tomorrow.

Against self-management, for ownness!


This Tuesday we’re going on a dérive, starting on foot from the Long Haul. We’ll leave at 8:15.

In a dérive one or more persons during a certain period drop their relations, their work and leisure activities, and all their other usual motives for movement and action, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there. Chance is a less important factor in this activity than one might think: from a dérive point of view cities have psychogeographical contours, with constant currents, fixed points and vortexes that strongly discourage entry into or exit from certain zones.

If you have a few minutes, read the rest of Theory of the Dérive by Guy Debord. It’s a quick read.

Readings for 11/6, 11/13

Next week we’re diving into some short stories by Jorge Luis Borges. Below you’ll find a PDF of the Collected Fictions translated by Andrew Hurley. The stories we’re reading are:

• “The Widow Ching—Pirate” (p. 12)

• “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” (p. 36)

• “Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote” (p. 47)

• “A Dialogue About Dialogue” (p. 149)

• “Borges and Myself” (p. 160)

That may seem like a lot, but these are all fairly short — all together, it’s only about 17 pages of reading.

In two weeks we’re back into The Unique and Its Property, this time starting with section 1.3 (“The Free”) and stopping at section 2.1. Later this month we’ll begin the second part of the text, where many of the juiciest bits are.

Until next time, friends…



activity for 10/23, reading for 10/30

In our ongoing experiment with different ways of using this reading group, next week we’ll be having a potluck and playing a game! Upon arriving we’ll each take a moment to write down a role, position, or persona (ideally one familiar to other anarchists) which will be randomly distributed amongst the group. Examples might include things like nihilist, syndicalist, activist, tankie, John Zerzan, or Guy Debord. We’ll then take turns acting out these positions in a playfully exaggerated manner and trying to guess who everybody is. We might also spend some time examining the different representations which get acted out and discussing our critiques of them or trying to tease out the assumptions and behaviors that make them tick. Think of it as study group charades. If this sounds kind of odd or confusing, it is intentionally so, as part of the idea is to experiment with making the rules up on the spot.

Please also bring some kind of food and/or drink to share —- vegan/veggie options are especially appreciated. Come ready to play and feast!

In two weeks (10/30) we’ll return to our reading of The Unique and Its Property, picking up where we left off with section 1.2.3 (“The Hierarchy”) and stopping at section 1.3. Remember Wolfi’s comments on the parodic intent of this section, as it is among the most controversial segments of the book when read at face value.

ALSO: As a supplement to our reading of Stirner over the next few months, some of us have endeavored to get together to recapture and elaborate on the discussions we have in the reading group by creating a sort of “audio companion” to the text; the idea being to record our conversations and provide a resource for those reading the text on their own. We will be doing these recordings in the days following our biweekly readings of the book and want the participants in them to change throughout to provide a variety of perspectives. If you’re interested in taking part, just say so at the reading group. You can listen to our first recorded conversation here:
