Matrizes da violência e do sofrimento na formação social do Brasil contemporâneo: uma revisitação crítica da obra O Povo Brasileiro de Darcy Ribeiro

Abstract : This article aims to investigate some socio-historical arrays of violence and suf-fering in social formation of Brazil in order to analyze the limits and possibilities thatthe classic work "The Brazilian people" from Darcy Ribeiro can offer towards understanding the conjuncture of violence that suffers the Brazilian society from colonial times to the con-temporary. Besides bespeak the pertinence, discontinuities and weaknesses of Ribeiro’s theory, we add a little of the theoretical apparatus of Latin American postcolonial theories in order to discern to what extent the epistemological subsidies provided by Ribeiro in this his classic work can be concatenated to reflective concerns of theorists such as Aníbal Quijano, Walter Mignolo and Ramon Grosfoguel. Finally, the article offers some analytical perspectives on how the revisiting this classic work of Brazilian social sciences (as well as others) can be profitable as long as their "rescue" is circumscribed by a hermeneutic that consider both synchronous as diachronic aspects, and also by critical reflexivities.
