Brazilian Philosophy

In this direction, using itself the words of Luis Washington Vita, one concludes that the national contribution in the field of the Philosophy is more assimilative of what creative. It is assimilated what it comes of it are, but never some proper national thought is created. To this fact another one is added: the dependence economic, but not only also cultural. While we are only consuming of foreign teses and we do not create nothing of original, implicitly we assume our condition of colonized intellectually. Lamentably, in Brazil, the cultural dependence, as well as the economic one, is seen with much naturalness. What many brazilian thinkers forget is that, in the act of to assimilate traditional theories, must be understood the respective historical context where the workmanship study object was written, which, is said, is always diverse of that one where our country is inserted. The author is well clearly in the following ticket: ' ' (…) vital ideas for a European or North American could here be mere ornaments intelectuais.' ' We must have in mind that books of Philosophy written by Brazilians do not estimate that it has really latent a Brazilian original Philosophy.

So that let us can consider that it has properly Brazilian Philosophy, is necessary some questionings, such as: which will be its language, its methodology, its conditions? The simple ones to want is not enough to answer to the questions that if place in them when we intend to create a thesis. In this question, filiar it what he is ready (the European thought) is, without a doubt, more cmodo of what to delouse themselves of our cultural alienation and to give life to an original thought. At certain moment of its workmanship, the author of the account of existence of those intellectuals who try in some way to justify the absence of Brazilian Philosophy, and the two main causes would be: ) not to be proper to the Brazilian spirit, and of the Latins in general, the concern with the study of Philosophy e; b) the Portuguese language would be unprovided of necessary philosophical terms to the adequate study and understanding of such disciplines, abstract.
