ON THE GOOD USE OF KNOWLEDGE: PEASENTRY AND THE AGRARIAN ISSUE IN MOACIR PALMEIRA’S WORK

Lucas Correia Carvalho About the author

Abstract

This paper examines the studies on peasantry and the agrarian issue carried out by anthropologist Moacir Palmeira to discuss how the mediation between union counseling and academia was equally important for his intellectual formulations on those topics. As distinct instances of analytical and practical observation, these activities led Palmeira to a broader understanding of the agrarian issue and the impasses of democracy in Brazil.
