Enlightenment in Brazil Its Role in Ordering the Brazilian Nation from the Works of Cipriano Barata

Luiz Carlos Ferraz Manini


This work aims to analyze, through the work of the journalist Cipriano Barata, how was the absorption of Enlightenment ideas in the context of brazilian state´s organization after its independence. In the early nineteenth century, Brazil became free of its colonial situation before Portugal, and the Enlightenment ideas, which arrived there through various filters and reinterpretations, served as a basis for ordering the new country. It’s in this context that Cipriano Barata’s work, which, among others, brought to the public context those political discussions which were based on this set of ideas, that helped in the huge transformations that were developed at that time.
