The institutionalization of Brazilian Political Thought in the Social Sciences: Wanderley Guilherme dos Santos’ Research Revisited (1963-1978)
In this article I shall analyze the content of Wanderley Guilherme dos Santos’ research, carried out between the decades of 1960 and 1970, and in the end perform an assessment of his contribution to the studies of Brazilian political thought. In summary, from his research there emerged a thesis for the existence of a national political culture; that Brazilian political thought was its intellectual product par excellence and that it would not be possible to comprehend the rugged Brazilian political process without studying this phenomenon.
