The aim of this work is that of providing a detailed account of the way in which the role played by Machiavelli within Gramsci’s thought changed over time. The analysis covers Gramsci’s entire production, starting from the years of his youth as a student and journalist (early 1910s) and ending with the last annotations of the Prison Notebooks (June 1935), showing how an interest whose roots were mainly historical in nature (e.g. with respect to the debate against Machiavellianism and anti-Machiavellianism) ended up in assuming a political form (i.e. the reflection on the modern Prince). The entire research was carried out adopting a diachronic analytical method so as to better emphasise the often subtle nuances characterising the shifts in Gramsci’s approach to the subject, especially in the light of the impactful role played by the secondary literature on Machiavelli he was familiar with.

Abstract

The aim of this work is that of providing a detailed account of the way in which the role played by Machiavelli within Gramsci’s thought changed over time. The analysis covers Gramsci’s entire production, starting from the years of his youth as a student and journalist (early 1910s) and ending with the last annotations of the Prison Notebooks (June 1935), showing how an interest whose roots were mainly historical in nature (e.g. with respect to the debate against Machiavellianism and anti-Machiavellianism) ended up in assuming a political form (i.e. the reflection on the modern Prince). The entire research was carried out adopting a diachronic analytical method so as to better emphasise the often subtle nuances characterising the shifts in Gramsci’s approach to the subject, especially in the light of the impactful role played by the secondary literature on Machiavelli he was familiar with.
