A modern, introductory approach to one of the greatest political theorists,
Antonio Gramsci.


'There is little doubt that Gramsci has become one of the most relevant
thinkers of the 20th century influencing many fields of contemporary
scholarship. Fillippini’s Using Gramsci is a tribute to this.’ - Cosimo
Zene, SOAS, University of London, editor of The Political Philosophies of
Antonio Gramsci and B. R. Ambedkar (Routledge, 2013)


About the book:

Including chapters on ideology, the individual, collective organisms,
society, crisis and temporality, Using Gramsci offers a new pattern in
Gramscian studies aimed to speak to the broader audience of social sciences
scholars. The tools that are provided in this book extend the uses of
Gramsci beyond the field of political theory and Marxism, while remaining
firmly rooted in his writings. Working from the original Italian texts,
Filippini also examines the more traditional areas of Gramsci’s thought,
including hegemony, organic intellectuals and civil society.
