Uomo medio, uomo collettivo e capo carismatico

The theory of the great man (grand homme) was born in relation to the possibility of a radical change in the social history of a specific era. The grand homme shows himself as a sort of higher interpreter of the best qualities of the average man, the one who synthesizes and exalts these qualities, with an empathetic approach of sharing them with the whole mass of average men. Starting from here, Antonio Di Meo addresses the subject of the relationship between the average man and the charismatic leader in the analysis by Gramsci.
