MAIA, João Marcelo E. Ao sul da teoria: a atualidade teórica do pensamento social brasileiro. Soc. estado. [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.2, pp. 71-94. ISSN 0102-6992.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69922011000200005.

The question that I address in this article is the following: how does one engage in contemporary theoretical debates departing from studies of the so-called Brazilian social thought? In order to answer this question, I argue that it is necessary to articulate Brazilian social thought scholarship to current debates which criticize eurocentrism and sustain the need for alternative discourses from the Global South as well. I also argue that it is important to put the history of Brazilian social thought into the wider context of a transnational history of the peripheral thought. I analyze Brazilian sociologist Guerreiro Ramos as a case-study in order to expand on this thread.

Palavras-chave : Brazilian social thought; social theory; Global South; Guerreiro Ramos.
