    Marx, Balzac E Gramsci.Sabrina Areco - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):14-31.
    This article explores the presence of Honoré de Balzac in the prison writings of Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci dealt with the literature relating the content of the work with its intellectual and political context of production, without subtracting the importance of artistic creation and innovation from Balzac. There is a treatment of the author as intellectual, in the terms defined by Gramsci himself, in which the role of cultural direction exerted by Balzac is emphasized. Its production is treated as an important (...)

    Gramsci, Politics, and Philosophy: A Composite Theory of Ideology.Aaron Bernstein - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):32-57.
    Although in comparison to other key Gramscian concepts, ideology has not been among the most studied, this is beginning to change. In particular, recent scholarship has demonstrated a diffuse and variegated usage of the term in the Prison Notebooks, as well as an innovative extension of the concept, which is articulated around a network of closely correlated terms and concepts. Nevertheless, debates remain over how to understand its meaning in Gramsci’s carceral discourse, with some arguing that his distinctive conception of (...)

    Interrupción y Novedad. Sentido Común y Política En Antonio Gramsci.Martín Cortés - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):58-72.
    The article analyses the concept of common sense in Gramsci, fundamentally in its relation with politics and philosophy. Common sense is analysed in the ambivalence and heterogeneity with which Gramsci characterizes it, in order to think about the problem of its criticism and overcoming. Common sense and philosophy are part of the “ideological approach to the world”, but philosophy constitutes a coherent and critical record of the passivity inherent in common sense. The article dwells especially on the importance of politics (...)

    Senso Comune/Buon Senso.Giuseppe Cospito - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):73-97.
    This article deals with Antonio Gramsci’s reflection on the categories of “common sense” and “good sense”, from the pre-prison writings onwards. If in the Gramscian journalistic articles these terms are employed in a loose way, in line with the early twentieth-century usages, a significant reflection can be retraced in the Prison Notebook. On the background of the French and notably Italian discussion on the topic in 1930s, Gramsci develops in his carceral notes an original conception of “common sense” and “good (...)

  6. Dalla Traduzione Alla Traducibilità: Uno Strumento di Emancipazione Teorica.Romain Descendre & Jean-Claude Zancarini - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):98-129.
    In this essay we set off on the quest for “translation-translatability” leitmotiv, remembering that Gramsci was “a revolutionary, a historicist” and, at the same time, a student with a solid background in glottology at the University of Turin. A first starting point, long before the prison years, is the debate on Esperanto, in which Gramsci took part in January 1918. Parallel to this, as from 1919, revolutionary political action came more and more to be presented as a form of translation. (...)

    L’Estensione Del Concetto di Ideologia in Gramsci E la Genesi Delle Sue Articolazioni.Gianni Francioni - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):130-149.
    This article aims to reconstruct the development of the category of ‘ideology’ in Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks between June 1929 and November 1930. In this survey, I will consider not only the occurrences of “ideology” but also the broader “conceptual cluster” ideology is part of. That includes categories such as “superstructure”, “philosophy”, “conception of the world”, “religion”, “common sense”, “folklore” For Gramsci, ideology is first of all a superstructure. As any other Marxist of his time, Gramsci uses initially the term ideology (...)

    Ideologie, Superstrutture, Linguaggi Nei Quaderni Del Carcere di Antonio Gramsci.Fabio Frosini - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):150-187.
    The unitary approach, developed in the Prison Notebooks, to the study of ideology, superstructures and language can be considered one of the most important and original contributions made by Gramsci to Marxist theory. With the definition of the gnoseological function of the superstructures/ideologies, and of the intrinsic link between ideology and language, Gramsci establishes a network of relations between “truth” and “politics”, with the mediation of the “translatability of languages”, which redefines in a substantial way both these spheres and, in (...)

    El Lenguaje Como Espacio de Pugna y de Superación Del Sentido Común.Diana Fuentes - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):188-211.
    This text analyzes how it is that Gramsci, through the category of hegemony and the expanded conception of the State, explains the reciprocal relationship between civil society and political society and accounts for the passage from private interest-the economic-corporate-to the general. That is, the transition from the economic to the political, highlighting the understanding of the ideological-cultural elements as aspects of a central methodological and strategic importance; in which language, seen as Weltanschauung, manifests itself as one of the privileged forms (...)

    Karl Marx: Dalla Filosofia Dell’Autocoscienza Alla Filosofia Della Prassi.Caterina Genna - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):404-418.
    The interpretation of the philosophical thought of Karl Marx given in the second half of the twentieth century canonically distinguishes between the works of the youth period and those of the maturity. Even if only a few interpreters have supported the thesis of the existence of “two Marx”, one opposed to the other, the attention given to some posthumous writings inevitably led to neglect the writings of the younger Marx. However, the years spent in Berlin are decisive, both for the (...)

  11. Gramsci, Philosophy of Language, and Aesthetic Judgment in Light of an Expanded Notion of Ideology.Nicole Gounalis - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):212-229.
    This essay connects Antonio Gramsci’s expanded concept of Marxian ideology to his training in linguistics and, broadly understood, philosophy of language in order to advance a hypothesis regarding Gramsci’s views on literary criticism and aesthetic judgment. This hypothesis can be summed up in the following way: aesthetic judgment, including literary criticism, maintains a unity of form and content while rejecting facile attempts to reduce the global meaning of a “political” work of art to its ideological content, where ideology is understood (...)

  12. Filosofia, Democrazia, Stato-Nazione Nei Quaderni Del Carcere.Francesca Izzo - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):230-241.
    By capitalising on his interpretation of historical materialism in terms of “philosophy of praxis”, Gramsci elaborates an original theory of modernity – modernity is neither “humanistic” nor “nihilistic”, but is founded on the issue of the “state-nation”. The concept of “national-popular” is the most appropriate expression of the “democratic” connection of “reason” and “life”, i.e. of intellectuals and people. This connection takes place in a territory that constitutes the essence of modern state. Machiavelli, the Jacobins and Hegel are key-figures of (...)

    Sociologie Et Religion Dans la Pensée de Gramsci.Marie Lucas - 2018 - Materialismo Storico 4 (2):242-266.
    The rejection of sociology is a Leitmotiv of Gramsci’s writings. According to him, sociologyis abstract, naturalistic and dogmatic conception of knowledge that arose in the framework of the socialist positivism. However, Gramsci is not against any development within social sciences. Indeed, the philosophy of praxis aims to connect practice and theory in order to establish a successful political action. Given that, religion is an excellent example of the way in which Gramsci describes the political meaning of knowledge. The Catholic Church, (...)

    In this work we seek to analyze the way in which Gramsci approaches the problem of the imaginative dimension of collective action, in order to problematize how this dimension is constituted as a fundamental field in which the struggle for the constitution of a collective will unfolds in history. In this sense, we propose an approach through the work of the Italian communist to analyze, first of all, some juvenile writings in which this dimension is thought around the concept of (...)

    Pope Alexander III committed himself, in an almost frenetic manner, to the reorganization of the matrimonial institute. Starting from the tradition of the Fathers, of the different laws and of canonists, he used the new instrument of canon law to give strength to his dispositions. If until that moment there wasn’t clarity about some characteristics of marriage, and if ecclesiastical or lay courts had jurisdiction over it, Alexander, strong in his canonical competence,, made it an exclusively ecclesiastical matter and that (...)

We are interested in understanding the complexity and degrees of distinct developments that express the dialectic between these formulations in the delineation of social relations and in the construction of hegemony.

    To understand the original way of thinking about “real democracy” in Gramsci it is necessary to reconstruct two “sequences” strictly connected: the sequence of the “theory” of the relations of force that depict the present hegemony as a form of unstable equilibrium; the sequence of the “philology” of the functional ideological schemata that, deriving from the different forms of common sense, turn into the philosophy of praxis. Moreover: Gramsci as a politician translates himself into Gramsci as philosopher and vice versa. (...)

    In the 50s and 60s of the twentieth century, Lucio Colletti developed a requisition against Hegel and against those elements of his philosophy that had penetrated into Marxism. The main thesis is simple and clear: the more Marxism is contaminated with Hegelism the more it loses scientific consistency. This thesis ends up investing the judgment on the work of Lenin too. The essay in question will show the opposite: the concepts that the Russian revolutionary will find in Hegel’s Logic provide (...)

    This article disputes the prevailing thesis according to which the Soviet revolution represented an irreparable rift in the Western cultural tradition and even a form of destruction of universal culture. The revolution of the Bolsheviks was inspired on the theoretical level by the dialectical method elaborated by classical German philosophy and by Marxism, which constituted the historical continuation of that philosophy. Despite the great contradictions that accompanied it, and which can be explained by the very severe political struggles on the (...)

    Soviet Diamat and historical materialism are based on an anthropology of scarcity, according to which the real nature of human beings is primarily a physical-corporeal one, fundamentally generic and aimed at taking possession of the natural world through human work, in order to satisfy our primary needs. Communism is consequently understood in theory and practice as a social organization in which the criterion of equality constitutes the primary and supreme value, while the criterion of difference and inequality constitutes the negative (...)

    One hundred years after the October Revolution, we can try to make an assessment of its outcomes and heritage. But if we just focus on the construction of a post-capitalistic society, of socialism, our evaluation will be partial, incomplete and unable to allow an understanding of the past and the current times. So, we have to tackle this issue from a double perspective: looking to the construction of socialism but looking also to the struggle against colonial domination, against imperialism. The (...)
