Thinking as Anarchists: Selected Writings from Volontà

Hamish Kallin (Editor), Giovanna Gioli (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Thinking as Anarchists brings together a series of influential papers from the Italian anarchist journal Volontà and the extended international circle connected to it. Initially published in the early 1980s, most of these papers have never appeared in English before. Together, they form a treasure trove of intellectual provocations on issues as diverse as authority, the state, utopia, freedom, patriarchy, and how we might envisage an anarchist approach to economics. Remarkably far-ranging in their points of reference, these interventions are “interdisciplinary” in the most radical sense of the word. Chiming with whilst strafing against the emergence of post-structuralist thought, these papers sought to reinvigorate the intellectual heart of the anarchist ideal in the dying years of the 20th century. Thinking as Anarchists is an essential text for historians of anarchism, and an engaging intervention for all those who theorise for a radically better world.
