Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Gramscian Moment contains the table of contents, a note on the text, acknowledgements and the preface. The book refers not only to the astounding annus mirabilis of 1932, in which Gramsci, deepening and articulating his interdisciplinary and multi-faceted research project, delineates the 'three component parts' of the 'philosophy of praxis' in the notions of an absolute 'historicism', absolute immanence and absolute humanism. It also refers to his integration in this year of his research into the nature of the modern state, on the one hand, and the social and political overdetermination of philosophy, on the other. The Gramscian moment thus signals the transition from a conception of the state as a 'philosophical event' to the elaboration of a notion of hegemony as a 'philosophical fact'.

Keywords: absolute historicism; absolute humanism; Gramscian Moment; philosophical event
