    interpretation of Gramsci. My approach aims to avoid reductionism, intellectualism, and one-sidedness, as well as the traditional practice of conflating his political thought with his active political life. I focus on the political theory of the Prison Notebooks and compare it with that of Gaetano Mosca.

    that these tasks people subject themselves to are really to support themselves. Rather, it is the few in charge, with power, that are the beneficiaries and reap the rewards. These privileged few get what they desire not through force, but through Antonio Gramsci’s idea of hegemony. Hegemony is the “process in which a dominant group gains – for its own interests – the approval of a subordinate class through the use of intellectual, moral, and cultural encouragement” (Mascia-Lees 151).

    different types of cognitive mechanisms - a group of heterogenous and partly reinforcing ideological effects (Balkin,1998).
