Antonio Gramsci Quote

Antonio Gramsci Quote

Folklore should instead be studied as a ‘conception of the world and life’ implicit to a large extent in determinate (in time and space) strata of society and in opposition (also for the most part implicit, mechanical, and objective) to ‘official’ conceptions of the world (or in a broader sense, the conceptions of the cultured parts of historically determinate societies) that have succeeded one another in the historical process. – Gramsci, Antonio, Selections from cultural writings. London (Lawrence & Wishart) 1985, 189
