Abstract: The Prison Notebooks of Antonio Gramsci are today acknowledged as a classic of Twentieth-century social theory, Philosophy and theory of Ideology. This essay proposes to make a contribution to the reflexion upon the French Ideology, namely the philosophy of Destutt de Tracy and Cabanis; Gramsci’s interpretation of Idéologues is the first step towards a new theory of Revolution in opposition to French Revolution.
