Title: Trajectory Of An Heir Between Two Political Projects [trajetória De Herdeiro Entre Dois Projetos Políticos]
Author: Bittencourt A.B.
Abstract: The intellectual and social trajectory of educator Anísio Teixeira is investigated in this article considering his geographical origins in Bahia - a politically peripheral state in relation to other states of the Brazilian federation of the Southeast and South regions -, as well as his social origins, which did not predestined him to a prominent role in the national scene, even less before being forty years old. A series of documents recording his international visits makes it possible here to analyze the key moments of his first information gathering about the issue of education, and the use he made of his contacts with intellectuals and politicians in first-rate European and American institutions with the purpose of conceiving a Brazilian project for Education in a moment of political transition, that is, in the 1925-1934 period. Emphasizing his meetings with fascist intellectuals in Italy and France, and with proponents of democratic education in the United States of America, the article attempts to show also how these trips allowed him to redefine his career in view of the obstacles erected by the revolution in the path his family education had foreseen for him. Approximations and articulations of the Bahia group with São Paulo intellectuals in the Capital of the Republic took care of repositioning the heir in his trajectory as a man of politics. © 2009 Faculdade de Educação da Universidade de São Paulo.
