Mikhail Bakunin (1814-1876) was a Russian revolutionary and prominent anarchist thinker, widely regarded as one of the founding figures of anarchism. Born into a noble family in Pryamukhino, Russia, Bakunin initially pursued a military career before turning to philosophy and revolutionary activities.

Influenced by Hegelian ideas, he became involved in various European uprisings and was a vocal critic of both state and church authority. Bakunin’s advocacy for collective anarchism emphasized the dismantling of oppressive structures to achieve a society based on voluntary cooperation and mutual aid.

His notable works include “God and the State” and “Statism and Anarchy.” Bakunin’s clashes with Marx over the role of the state in socialism led to his expulsion from the First International. Despite his tumultuous life, Bakunin’s ideas have had a lasting impact on anarchist movements and continue to inspire anti-authoritarian thought worldwide.
