Title: Pressupositions, Unless Otherwise Noted, Of A Silent Disagreement: Antonio Candido, Roberto Schwarz And Brazilian Modernity [pressupostos, Salvo Engano, De Uma Divergência Silenciosa: Antonio Candido, Roberto Schwarz E A Modernidade Brasileira]
Author: De Melo A.C.B.
Abstract: Due to the sharing of the same critical- methodological apparatus, the names of Antonio Candido and Roberto Schwarz are commonly associated. In this article, I intend to examine the tensions and discontinuities, frequently omitted, between those two intellectual projects. I argue that their views on Brazilian modernity are substantially divergent. Whereas Candido exhibits an optimistic tone vis-a-vis the transforming potentialities of the Brazilian people, Schwarz presents a more pessimistic interpretation about the Brazilian social (de)for-mation. I analyze how these divergent interpretations support the critical-historiographic project of these two authors.
