Gramsci's Laboratory: Philosophy, History and Politics.


Gramsci's Laboratory: Philosophy, History and Politics

Alvaro Bianchi. Translated by Sean Purdy



289 pages



Historical Materialism Book Series; Volume 204


Bianchi writes for specialists in the thought of Sardinian Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci (1891- 1937) who are interested in further interpretations of his ideas, and for political and social activists who are interested in changing the world. Looking at the relationship between philosophy and politics, in Gramci's Quaderni del carcerer )(Prison Notebooks), he argues that Gramsci unfolds the unity of theory and practice theoretically through the unity of philosophy, history, and politics. He developed this unity in the research project that he carried out in prison, he says, and it was thus a product of the determination in the last instance of politics itself. He concludes that history and philosophy are constitutive elements of the political field from which they claim to keep their distance. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
