SUMMARY"Hegemony and Education is a study written in opposition to the displacement of hegemony by recent post-Marxist scholarship from the historical materialist foundations that underpin Antonio Gramsci's own distinctive usage of the concept. Author Deb J. Hill argues that it was precisely the impress of capitalism's economic and extra-economic aspect upon humanity's own cognitive and moral capacity - upon its relational and valuational capacity - that Gramsci's writings attempt to articulate. As Hegemony and Education reveals, Gramsci's entire written legacy reflects his historical materialist allegiance: the problem of "education" as no less than the educative-formative problem of practical reasoning."--BOOK JACKET
