Abstract

The 2013 June/July protests in Brazil have evoked analyses from social sciences experts, from perplexity to the description of specific factors that explain the great social manifestation on the streets. This article picks some of the diagnoses published by the press at large and connects them to a crisis in paradigms that has been dealt with, in an interdisciplinary fashion, in seminaries and essays published in the “Novo Pacto da Ciência” series, created by the author in 1991 at the Escola de Comunicações e Artes.
