Seven of those are new items written particularly for suggestion pondering, and are meant either to give a contribution to ongoing debates approximately Gentile's philosophy and to point quite a few of its many facets that proceed to attract the eye of philosophers, political theorists and highbrow historians. those are supplemented by means of new English translations of 4 of Gentile’s shorter works, chosen to provide a few direct perception into his principles and elegance of writing.
