Marxismo e economia política: ‘o caso Caraça’


  • Carlos Bastien

    (ISEG/GHES – Universidade Técnica de Lisboa)


Bento de Jesus Caraça (1901-1948) was an outstanding intellectual in the Portuguese cultural scene during the inter-war period and in the second post-world-war. His diversified writings, based on an heterodox interpretation of Marxian ideas, focused on mathematics, philosophy of culture and political doctrine. The main goal of this paper is to characterize a specific topic of his thought: the nature of his economic ideas, namely the way he intermingled those ideas with both his Marxian wisdom and the introduction of econometrics in Portugal.
