The essay deals with the concept of authority, as discussed by the theorists of anarchism between the late eighteenth and nineteenth century. The dogma of natural law, which, in anarchists’ opinion, paves the way to despotic power, is criticized from both individualist and socialist positions. With reference to a natural law that opposes liberal contractualism, State, the emblem of power, is stigmatized for its alienating connotation compared to an associationism that can be variously configured as spontaneous. State can be historicized and therefore relativized, while society exists regardless of any institutionalism.

Abstract

The essay deals with the concept of authority, as discussed by the theorists of anarchism between the late eighteenth and nineteenth century. The dogma of natural law, which, in anarchists’ opinion, paves the way to despotic power, is criticized from both individualist and socialist positions. With reference to a natural law that opposes liberal contractualism, State, the emblem of power, is stigmatized for its alienating connotation compared to an associationism that can be variously configured as spontaneous. State can be historicized and therefore relativized, while society exists regardless of any institutionalism.
