A great blog which is both intelligent and progressive

I just stumbled across a blog post on one of my favourite thinkers, Gramsci.  You’ll never guess this, but the post used Sesame Street and Thomas the Engine of all things to illustrate Gramsci’s neo-Marxian account of how the ideology of the dominant class is passed down to the rest of us through, to use Gransci’s terminology, hegemony.  It’s amazingly easy to read even for somebody who hasn’t read Gramsci’s The Prison Notebooks, so I strongly encourage everyone to check it out.

You can find it here: “Gramsci, Sesame Street, and Thomas”

I haven’t read too much else of Scott’s blog, but anybody who’s aware of Gramsci and can relate it to Thomas the Engine has my vote.  I’ll be putting up a permalink to his blog on my sidebar shortly.

    Hi Paul! I thanked you in response to the comment you left over at my place, but it occurred to me that it was probably good netiquette to come on over here and thank-you in your own space…so thanks for the kind words and for the link!
