Show Summary Details


This chapter moves the book's focus to theoretical approaches specifically oriented around the analysis of ideational phenomena. It argues, however, that none is fully able to consider the meaning and implications of the emergence of new ideas such as globalisation. The analytical concept of ideology, especially as understood by political theorists such as Michael Freeden, may be able to help the political economy in this regard. It surveys the main forms of ideational analysis influential within political economy: constructivism, post-structuralism and neo-Gramscianism.

Keywords: globalisation; Michael Freeden; political economy; neo-Gramscianism; constructivism; post-structuralism
