Could you please tell me the name of a philosopher who wrote text about language mutations? As far as I remember he has 'Max' in the name. More then, one day he said something like: "Commune kills individualism"

I'm so bad in psychology, but he is something near Jaspers, Wittgenstein or such, in school knowledge lectures story line.

    "Commune kills individualism" ? Maybe communism ... Dec 26, 2016 at 9:08
  • There is no logic in assumption like : "communism kills individualism". Those are completely different dimensions of abstraction.

Do you mean Max Stirner?

On the Contrary, Communism, by the abolition of all personal property, only presses me back still more into dependence on another, viz., on the generality or collectivity; and, loudly as it always attacks the "State," what it intends is itself again a State, a status, a condition hindering my free movement, a sovereign power over me. Communism rightly revolts against the pressure I experience from individual proprietors; but still more horrible is the might that it puts in the hands of the collectivity.
