For those who feel trodden underfoot by the crowd, who feel alienated by society, who want more authenticity in their relationships, Georges Palante is for you. Reading Palante powers up the soul that feels drained by being stretched in too many directions by too much contact with too many other people and concerns. He helps you recenter and focus on your uniqueness, value your differences from others, and then reach out to others on your own terms.

He could also be called the Ayn Rand of the Left. He was the first to say that "there is no such things as society, there are only individuals." In "The Individualist Sensibility", Palante examines the inidividualistic mindset in relation to various themes, including friendship, solidarity, irony, and concludes with a harsh comparison between anarchism and individualism.

Palante has not been widely known outside France, and largely remains outside the canon of libertarian and individualist authors. This is the first complete English translation of one of his works.
