The book “O Olho de Deus no Discurso Salazarista” will be preseted in Braga

The book “O Olho de Deus no Discurso Salazarista”, by Moisés de Lemos Martins, will be presented by José Bragança de Miranda (Professor of the New University of Lisbon) and Bernardo Pinto de Almeida (Professor of the University of Porto), in a session scheduled for April 5 (9:30 pm), at Biblioteca Lúcio Craveiro da Silva (Braga).
The work, published by Afrontamento, is a second edition of the book and reproduces the PhD thesis, defended by Moisés de Lemos Martins at the University of Humanities in Strasbourg (France) in 1984. It is a study of the dominant regime in Portugal during the Estado Novo, in the 30s and 40s of the 20th century, a study that questions the general meaning of salazarist policy, that is to say, its regime of truth. And it was because the salazarist regime truth question was posed that Moisés de Lemos Martins considered the discourse as a political disciplinary practice, that is exerted on a historical memory, on the look, on the desire and on a will.
“Feeding innumerable journeys of knowledge, ‘O Olho de Deus no Discurso Salazarista’ crossed over in twenty-five years with many regimes of gaze. This book on Salazarism remains a work of knowledge, although it is already another experience” (Moisés de Lemos Martins, Preface to the 2nd edition).
