TAVOLARO, Sergio B. F.  and  TAVOLARO, Lília G. M.. A cidadania sob o signo do desvio: Para uma crítica da "tese de excepcionalidade brasileira". Soc. estado. [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.2, pp.331-368. ISSN 0102-6992.

This article aims at carrying out a critique of the so-called "thesis of the Brazilian normative exceptionality". The two driving questions are: first and foremost, is there any disadvantage, from an analytical point of view, in remaining oriented by the notion according to which the experience of citizenship in Brazil is something peculiar as compared to the "nucleus of modernity"? Secondly, is it possible to envisage another fruitful way of framing such an experience which goes beyond the "exceptionality thesis"?

Keywords : citizenship in Brazil; brazilian social thought; modernity.
