The State as Religion
This chapter focuses on Giovanni Gentile's philosophical idealism and his treatment of political issues. Gentile related modern political philosophy to the political doctrines of Giuseppe Mazzini, whose religion he saw as being at the very heart of Mazzini's thought, and was quick to defend its presence. He also argued that Mazzini was a precursor of fascism, which was the culmination of the efforts of the major political leaders of the Risorgimento.
