Abstract

Desde o início, a obra de Adolfo Coelho despertou a atenção dos brasileiros interessados nas questões da língua portuguesa. Foi, porém, relativamente pequeno o interesse pela dimensão antropológica e política de sua obra, naquele momento de inflexão histórica em Portugal e no Brasil. Em perspetivas opostas, nos dois países, nascia a categoria povo, tema da antropologia de Coelho. Em ambos, o positivismo se difundia. No Brasil como instrumento poderoso de anulação da eficácia da cultura popular, não tendo ali surgido um autor que, como Adolfo Coelho, propusesse a tese do povo como sujeito de consciência e objeto de conhecimento. Right from the start, Adolfo Coelho's work grabbed the attention of Brazilians interested in issues about the Portuguese language. The anthropological and political dimensions, however, were of less interest at that time in Portugal and Brazil. The two countries developed divergent views of the concept of povo – one of Coelho's themes. In both places and views, positivism prevailed – but in Brazil it was a powerful instrument in countering the efficacy of popular culture, as no author comparable to Adolfo Coelho had arisen who would argue that the povo were a subject of conscience and an object of understanding.
