In illustrating a Saidian inﬂected Gramsci, perhaps it is important to begin by emphasizing the fact that Said came to Gramsci having already accidentally discovered the work of Giambattista Vico (Said 1994: 421–22). Vico’s relatively obscure work on the connection between situated history—with an emphasis upon its human construction and its physicality—and philology would greatly inﬂuence Said’s own critical methods, as well as his reading of Gramsci’s work (Said 2001: 86). Thus, Said always underlined the need to recall the fact that Gramsci’s training was not only in philology, but in a form of philology that was, following Vico, always contextualized, always historical, always situated.

It is this face of Said, and its connection to the writings of Gramsci, that the rest of this chapter attempts to bring back to light in order to revitalize Gramsci’s project of counterhegemony on the ground. Postcolonialism and neglected images of Edward Said In view of the above, a note of caution should be sounded on the directions in which, or aspects of, Edward Said’s work that have either been embraced, or largely ignored in the appropriation of his writing in IR speciﬁcally, but also in the overall picture of the debates emerging within Postcolonialism itself today.
And while it is true that interpretation is a contested terrain (Said et al. 2000: 195–217), and understandable that within certain contexts and historical junctures, authors are naturally, and perhaps politically, more inclined to bring certain sides of Gramsci’s thoughts into play, something about the overall picture presented by neo-Gramscian appropriations of his writings does not do justice to the rich, diverse, loosely intertwined, sometimes contradictory, whole of Gramsci’s vision. g.
