Abstract: This paper explores
the use of Gramsci's notion of hegemony in analyzing
the relationships between US labor unions, the US foreign
policy establishment, and workers in the global South.
The hegemonic position of US capitalists, in relation
to both US workers and states in the global South, heavily
conditioned the development of American Federation of
Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations foreign policy
during the cold war, with path-dependent effects that
have carried over into the post-cold-war era of 'globalization'.
Although recent changes in the relationships between
US capitalists and US labor unions have undermined the
US 'labor accord' that reigned during the cold war,
the new, ascendant transnational neoliberal hegemony
has not as yet completely transformed the relationships
of labor unions in the United States to those elsewhere
in the world, which poses ongoing challenges for international
labor solidarity, even in a context of new possibilities.

Abstract: This thesis has been written in opposition
to this displacement of hegemony from the historical
materialist foundations that underpin Gramsci's own
distinctive usage of the concept. My opposition centres
particularly on the post-Marxist renunciation of the
philosophical assumptions upon which socialism is founded,
and upon the inevitable loss of the distinctive nuances
of hegemony as a concept centring on the problem of
the pathological reach of a capitalist epistemology
and ontology upon human identity. As I argue within
this study, it is precisely the impress of capitalism's
economic and extra-economic aspect upon humanity's own
cognitive and moral capacity upon its relational and
valuational capability which Gramsci's writings attempted
to articulate. In this respect, Gramsci differentiated
himself in Marxist circles by the depth of his insights
into Marx's historical materialist method and the practical
reasoning ('praxis') that this methodology simultaneously
engendered. Explaining this method, and the problem
of education that this perspective further implies,
is therefore the aim of this thesis. As I argue here,
his entire written legacy reflects his historical materialist
allegiance: the problem of 'education' as no less than
the educative-formative problem of practical reasoning.

Martin, James. “The Political Logic of Discourse: A Neo-Gramscian View.” History of European Ideas, vol. 28, no. 1-2 (2002): 21-31.
Abstract: This article contrasts Mark Bevir's approach to the history of ideas with a neo-Gramscian theory of discourse. Bevir puts the case for an `anti-foundationalist' approach to understanding ideas, yet he defends a weak rationalism centred on individual intentions as the original source of all meanings. Discourse theorists--specifically Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe--also adopt an anti-foundationalist perspective but pursue its implications beyond any rationalism. The advantages of discourse theory are argued to lie in its emphasis on power and conflict in the consitution and transformation of social meanings and identity. Laclau and Mouffe's work, it is claimed, alerts us to a political logic of discourse that Bevir's more rationalist approach to `ideas' sidesteps.

Abstract: The objective of this article is to
discuss, through historical perspective, Gramsci's position
on three debates in the socialist movement: the polemics
around the theory of Permanent Revolution, the debates
that opposed Stalin/Bukarin and Trotsky/Zinoviev with
the continuation of the NEP in the 20´s, and the
International Communist political problem called “Third
Period,” the name that was adopted in the VI Congress
by Komintern, in 1928. O the third issue, I discuss
a few questions from Gramscian perspective as an alternative
to the marxist-leninism of the Stalinist type and the
contribution of the Russian Leon Trotsky. The Italian
communist bequeathed appears as the dialectics overcome
from the Third International inheritance, that are represented
in the stalinist vulgate and in the trotskist thesis.
From these readings and from the new Quaderni del Carcere
editions, I propose that some interpretations that were
perpetuated after the first Gramsci editions in Italy
and created so-called “Western Marxism”
are being repeated in Brazil and oppose Gramsci to the
alternatives of revolutionary Marxism.
