Watch the video of Professor Evandro Pontes’s conference on the virtue of nationalism
The Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Alexandre de Gusmão Foundation (FUNAG) held, on December 11, 2019, a conference on the virtue of nationalism with Professor Evandro Pontes, at the auditorium of the Rio Branco Institute, in Brasília.
Professor Pontes has produced the Portuguese translation of the book The Virtue of Nationalism, by Israeli political philosopher Yoram Hazony. The work won the 2019 Conservative Book of the Year award of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute in the US.
In his conference, Pontes presented Hazony’s thinking, which defends nationalism as the best way to organize the world to ensure the freedom of every nation to cultivate its own traditions and values, in opposition to what he dubs “imperialism.” Pontes also spoke on the application of such concepts to Brazilian reality.
