Idealistic Studies 20 (3):259-260 (1990)

Antonio Gramsci was not a professional philosopher, but a political educator. Using a label of his own, we might perhaps say that he was an “integral journalist.” But when he was confined to prison, he was obliged to write “journals” for himself; and he had the enforced leisure to meditate upon the historical and conceptual context of his own active life. So he became, in a critical and fragmentary way, a philosopher malgre lui—and it is my impression that he was a very good one.
