Sample text

As the grandfather of neo-Gramscian IR who fired the signal flare that illuminated a hitherto obscured terrain. Second, and beyond this problem of classification and labelling, there is the question of the relationship between Gramsci and so-called Gramscian theory and analysis on the one hand, and that heterodox tradition that is our main object of enquiry, namely neo-Gramscian IR, on the other hand. To what extent do we expect the neo-Gramscians to be loyal to Gramsci? To the extent that a distinctive Gramscian canon, method, or politics can even be identified, how far do we see a consistent and relatively distinctive deployment of Gramsci within the neo-Gramscian analysis?

Any survey of the intellectual development of neo-Gramscian analysis must begin by recognizing that it has evolved through the successive theoretical resolution of given problems. By contrast, Gramsci’s own politico-intellectual development was informed by the concrete historical resolution8 of given problems: the latter holds broadly true of those leftist intellectual traditions that were forged and shaped by active social struggle by a movement’s leading intellectuals (hence Gramsci’s preoccupation with the formation of organic intellectuals).

Thus, what defines membership of the neo-Gramscian club is a common attraction to the conceptual vocabulary and political insights originally offered by Gramsci. Neither consistency of method (by which I mean “abstraction”) nor ontological agreement serve to distinguish neo-Gramscian IR. As such, on this reading, the catholic, even eclectic, composition of neo-Gramscian IR leads to a Jack Hackett-like conclusion that the neo-Gramscian problematic “would be an ecumenical matter,” inviting a theoretically ecumenical and nondoctrinal response.
