Five. Finally, something about the motivation to have carried Brazil Email Lists out this exercise. In a recent article that is inserted in the post / decolonial debate, José Maurício Domingues completes his debate with postcolonial and decolonial approaches by urging his exponents to review his assumptions and to enter into a more systematic dialogue between Brazil Email Lists with the social sciences.46.
At the same time, he calls on Latin American sociology to face a Brazil Email Lists theoretical task that goes beyond regional descriptions and ill-defined "critical" positions. To do this, he calls us to return to the fruitful tradition embodied in analysts such as Florestan Fernandes, Pablo González Casanova, and Gino Germani. I read this article while reviewing "against the grain" several texts written by that generation of authors, looking for the way in which they had Brazil Email Lists conceptualized and investigated the various dimensions of social inequalities.
My search was to a certain extent genealogical, Brazil Email Lists oriented to the origin or roots of current ideas and concepts. I was also guided by the belief/intuition/memory that this generation of thinkers combined public-political concerns with the scientific rigor of their empirical research in a very special and fruitful way. This is the tradition that we must restore. I then find an attractive convergence of Brazil Email Lists with Domingues' call, made from another field of dialogue.
