W stronę ekonomicznej doktryny anarchoindywidualizmu — czyli o granicach państwa i bezgranicznej wolności słów kilka
Towards the Economic Doctrine of Individualist Anarchism, or: a Few Words on the Boundaries of the State and Boundless Freedom
Languages of publication
The article is devoted to the economic doctrine of individualist anarchism, also referred to as capitalist anarchism. The essay is divided into three parts. The first part presents the sources and basic premises of the doctrine. The author discusses both the economic (A. Smith’s classical liberalism) and the philosophical (M. Stirner’s egoism) foundations. The second part entails an analysis of social and economic views of two thinkers: J.C. Bastiat and M. Friedman. The contributions of both thinkers are particularly valuable, since they do not limit themselves to simple analysis of the boundaries of acceptable activity on the part of the state in the economic sector, but also are able to translate those reflections into the language of the legal system. The third part of the article focuses on the juxtaposition of the axiology of individualist anarchism with theories of justice. The author pays particular attention to the concepts of material and procedural (formal) justice. Taking the above into account, the author attempts to answer the question as to which of the discussed conceptions of justice can be regarded as the most adequate to the cultural conditions in postmodern societies.
