Albert Jay Nock

За автора

Albert Jay Nock (1872-1945), author, editor, educator, humanist, and literary philosopher was a prolific writer of essays. For four years he was the Editor of one of the greatest of American periodicals, the short-lived journal The Freeman. He published perhaps a dozen volumes culminating in the Memoirs, his magnum opus. Nock's learning was prodigious; his literary ken extraordinary.

He was an influential American libertarian author, educational theorist, and social critic of the early and middle 20th century. Murray Rothbard was deeply influenced by him, and so was the whole generation of free-market thinkers of the 1950s.

A Stroll With Albert Jay Nock

ALBERT JAY NOCK (1870-1945) was never a household name even in his own lifetime but his memory has been kept green in the half century since his death. His Mr. Jefferson (1926), Our Enemy, The State (1935), and Memoirs of a Superfluous Man (1943) have never been long out of print. In 1991 Jacques Barzun wrote about the double pleasure of reading Nock “for what he says and for the way he says it.” Nock’s work was “social and intellectual criticism at its best” and Barzun wrote optimistically that he “will surely climb in due course to his proper place in the American pantheon.”
