Russian revolutionary. His political philosophy was the revolutionary doctrine known as collectivist anarchism.
He is valid as one of the most high-powered thinkers of the anarchistic movement and as it's first organizer.Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin was a Russian revolutionary anarchist and founder of collectivist anarchism. He is considered among the most influential figures of anarchism, and one of the principal founders of the social anarchist tradition. Bakunin's enormous prestige as an activist made him one of the most famous ideologues in Europe, and he gained substantial influence among radicals throughout Russia and Europe.
His grave can be found in Bremgarten Cemetery of Bern, box 9201, grave 68. His original epitaph reads: Remember those who sacrificed everything for the freedom of their country. In 2015 the commemorative plate was replaced in form of a bronze portrait of Bakunin by Swiss artist Daniel Garbade containing Bakunin's quote: By striving to do the impossible, man has always achieved what is possible. It was sponsored by the Dadaists of Cabaret Voltaire Zurich, who adopted Bakunin post-mortem.
