The subject of this research is the complex socio-philosophical issues related to modern understanding of the ideas of rejection of the political and social role of the state. The object of this research is the socio-philosophical and socio-political ideas of Max Stirner. The author considers the peculiarities of comprehending the historical role of the state and its rejection in the process of social development. Special attention is given to the modern interpretations of the thoughts and ideas of Max Stirner, their consoance with new challenges and problems arising in the process of state’s activity. The author insists on the relevance of multiple ideas and regulations of Max Stirner, as well as their theoretical and practical applicability in modern sense of the complicated and contradictory tendencies of social development .The author is also assured in the value of Stirner’s understanding of human, society, and the state in creation of the new, alternative forms of socio-political organization of humanity. The key method of this research consists in analyzing of the text “The Unique and Its Property”, aimed at determination of the insufficiently clear sense of his comprehension of the rejection of state and social functions of the “union of egoists”. The author pursues correlation between certain principles of Max Stirner and the ideas of Kant and Fichte. The scientific novelty lies in the fact that the author negates to accept the established interpretation of the creative heritage of Max Stirner as an Orthodox anarchist of the individualistic sense. The author concludes that some ideas of Max Stirner cannot be reduce to the purely anarchist rejection of the state, and his concept of the “union of egoists” contains practically valuable for the modernity regulations that help to better understand the concept and essence of the transformation taking place in the modern world in perception of the social role and functions of the state. In addition, the author examines the certain aspects of Stirner’s philosophy as a distinct social utopia that contains certain scientific value for understanding the possible prospects of human and social evolution.
