This is an intellectual self-profile. The author starts identifying the political and theoretical influences he had, as a young man, from his family, and from intellectuals as Marx, Weber and Keynes, abroad, and from Furtado and Rangel, in Brazil. He divides his contributions in historical and theoretical. The historical analyses are, on their turn, subdivided on the ones dealing specifically with Brazil and Latin America and the other referring to changes in contemporary world economy and society. The theoretical contributions are the ones rather of logical-deductive, or methodological, than of historical-inductive, character. In the conclusion the author makes a general evaluation of the work done, that is also a research program for the future.
