SOLER, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar y. A reading on the organic intellectual in Gramsci. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp.541-561. ISSN 1677-1168.

This paper presents some reflections of the organic intellectual in Gramsci thought’s. From a reading fixed on some texts of this thinker and commentators gathered indicative of the commitment of this figure with the company in an open dialogue between culture and hegemony, enabling this way, the emancipation of the people. The question developed by Gramsci is the task of realizing the organic intellectual as a character and culture as a process always expanding. Thus, the organic intellectual raison d’être is the subject who tries to think controversial issues and to direct a practice that is necessarily linked to modern social problems. This character is stuck in the culture of the organization always acting with respect, and that act effectively in an historic transformation proposal in which the old orthodoxies give way to new concerns and dilemmas.

Keywords : Organic intellectual; Gramsci; Culture.
