Who writes about anarchism?

Saturday 13 December 2003, by ps

You would think that only anarchists write on this topic. But such is not the case. The issues of order and domination are so important that most people, one day or another, I confronted with these problems. In fact, the literature which is the most publicized in the media, the universities and elsewhere is mostly anti anarchistic.

As a movement, anarchism has interested historians; philosophers study it as a view of the world; fiction writers think that anarchist characters are colorful; and of course, other movements often have had to confront anarchist ideas.

But anarchism is not only depicted in writings: it is expressed in art, music, films. And even philatelists can look for anarchist stamps.
