Example text

Thus, Gramsci linked intellectuals to precapitalism, capitalism, and socialism. Intellectuals draw on lay categories or everyday forms of consciousness—that Gramsci (1971:333, 348–351) also called common sense or good sense—to elaborate worldviews and ideologies. Common sense has a dual nature: through activity, it unites individuals with each other in the practical transformation of their current reality; through language, it reflects an inherited tradition (Gramsci 1971:333). By noting this dual foundation of common sense, Gramsci reformulated Marxist theories of ideology and false consciousness with the idea of “contradictory consciousness” that stemmed from a difference between individuals’ understanding of their current situation simultaneously through their own experience and some more general widespread social and cultural formulation.

More generally, we strive to understand how the influence of states, societies, and their interaction on information gathering varies by historical context. That is, our ambition is not only to explain the specific links among the domain levels in a given context but also to account for temporal shifts in the importance of the domain levels. This historicizing ambition derives from the general stance embodied in our model. We hold that ontologically, reality forms an interconnected whole (“totality” or social context) within which particular relations play out; this reality can (indeed, must) be bracketed for specific investigations, but it must subsequently be reincorporated into the inquiry.
