    The publication in 2001 of Celso Furtado's PhD thesis, defended in 1948 at the University of Paris, and which until recently had remained inaccessible to Brazilian readers, together with the first two articles published in the journal História Econômica & História de Empresas, vol. II.2 (1999), reopened the issue of our economic historiography's formative period. Addressing the period between the years 1929 and 1959, this paper has the purpose of reconstructing that process, and of indicating its main theoretical landmarks, by stressing in the analysis the activities and writings of Roberto Simonsen, Caio Prado Jr. and Alice Canabrava, besides those of Celso Furtado himself. It attempts to identify and characterize their main conditioning factors, as well as their consequences for the present shape of our discipline.
