Oliveira Vianna

He can yourself be said that the picture that Freyre makes of the colonial society if approaches in some aspects of that one sketched by both the other authors: agrarian society and escravocrata, formed for dispersed and self-sufficient nuclei, dominated for the patriarcal family. But, in this return to the past, the analysis of Gilbert Freyre differs in such a way from the one of Oliveira Vianna, worried in looking the origins of the agricultural clans, how much of the one of Sergio Buarque, who has in the Iberian inheritance, a central element.

From the ideas of plasticity and balance of antagonisms, Freyre dives in colonial society to understand it as the embryo of a new and original society, fruit of an experience of adaptation to the tropic. He is the Portuguese with its plasticity that comes to prove definitively, in Brazil, an agrarian society, escravocrata and hybrid, explicitado in the affirmation: ‘ ‘ Organized the colonial society on more solid base and in conditions more steady than in India or the African feitorias, in Brazil it is that the definitive test of that aptitude would be become fullfilled. The base, agriculture; the conditions, the patriarcal stability of the family, the regularity of the work by means of the slavery, the union of the Portuguese with the woman indian, incorporated the economic and social culture of invasor.’ thus; ‘ (Freyre, House Grande and Senzala, 1994, P. 04).

The conception of Gilbert Freyre of the national formation, is well clear as a process of balance of antagonisms. The three authors analyzed until here, carry through a historical interpretation of the formation social Brazilian. Each one, coming back to the origins of the Brazilian society, looks for to understand what we are. What it in such a way distinguishes Oliveira Vianna from Sergio Buarque how much of Gilbert Freyre it is the diagnosis character that it prints to its interpretation on Brazil.
