AMORIM NETO, Octavio  and  SANTOS, Fabiano. La ciencia política en Brasil: el desafío de la expansión. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.1, pp.101-110. ISSN 0718-090X.

Abstract Brazil's political science managed to establish itself in the 1970s under a military regime. From the 1980s till the late 1990s the discipline grew and became institutionalized. However, there now exist within the country's political science write out community two schools that simply do not communicate with each other, namely, an empirical school and a normative-philosophical one. We propose that a political science community that still needs to expand must adopt a, so to speak, consociational model to organize the interaction between its main schools. To do so, there must be an ample consensus on the community's lines of expansion, a consensus that should rest upon the improvement of the teaching of methods in humanities.
