The meeting of History and Ideology


This blog was started as a place where I could post and share my political-philosophical thoughts.

For me, there are four thinkers who are essential to this strain of political theory: Walter Benjamin, Antonio Gramsci, Louis Althusser, and Simon Critchley.

To start, this blog will probably be dominated by posts relating to the senior thesis I am currently writing in my final year at Hampshire College.

More soon….
