When Hegemony Turns Into ‘Hegemania’…


  • Can CEYLAN

    () (Istanbul Ticaret Universitesi)


There are many factors that determine our behaviours and those of others around us. In most cases, we wtiness that social actions take place even though they are not appreciated personally. These actions may get out of the limits of our consent and may head to the margins. These actions that are considered through the concept of “hegemony” by Gramsci may be converted into “mania” in the further stages and push our social lives out of control.
