    This short little book on the primary Fascist theorist and ideologue, Giovanni Gentile who comes, like Croce and Stefanini, out of the Subjectivist school of Italian idealism , is a tour du force, and I recommend it highly to anyone interested in the subject of Fascist thought.This book contains a fascinating and largely correct analysis of the metaphysical foundations of Marxism especially of Marx which Gregor rightly understood to be connected not with the mechanistic traditions o This short little book on the primary Fascist theorist and ideologue, Giovanni Gentile who comes, like Croce and Stefanini, out of the Subjectivist school of Italian idealism , is a tour du force, and I recommend it highly to anyone interested in the subject of Fascist thought.This book contains a fascinating and largely correct analysis of the metaphysical foundations of Marxism especially of Marx which Gregor rightly understood to be connected not with the mechanistic traditions of the British materialists, to whom Marx as early as the Notebooks explicitly opposed and which was, indeed, the materialism of Engels, and then of Lenin , but rather to the pragmatist vitalist traditions associated with Priestly s notion of living matter which Marx thought was derived from the materialism of Epicurus a topic to which Marx devoted his dissertation This is the metaphysical underpinning, by the way, that justifies the humanist interpretation of Marxism, from Mondolfo onwards.It s a fabulous book and though Gregor himself is a fascist he was strongly influenced by Julius Evola , and sometimes maintains slightly eccentric positions he is still the most perspicacious student of the topic writing in any language, in my opinion

    The fundamental study of one of the most important and original philosophers of fascism this book is short, and also contains an important study of the metaphysical foundations of Marxism which is, in my opinion, correct in all but one of its particulars.
