The portuguese intellectual Jaime Zuzarte Cortesão (1884-1960) excelled in the innovation of historical studies, giving an atlantic guidance and an overview of the expansion and colonization of overseas territory, especially the idea of the formation of Brazil as an aware and dynamic project of the Lusitanian State. Assigning a modern notion of History, in the process of routinization of Social Sciences, does not leave, however, to believe in the exemplary and pedagogical meaning of the past, causing distinct regimes of temporality from crossing throughout his writing of history, in a constant dialogue between historicism/history-science, nostalgia/presenteism. Conception aimed at both the research about the national history and a civic and pedagogical awareness, very common on his modernist's generation. This historiographical analysis intend to reconstruct critically the theoretical propositions and theses of the author outside the general framework of historical production from the first half of the twentieth century. Thus seeking to identify the main vectors used by him in support of his historiographical project. And, therefore, in the practical application of it in the interpretation of the formation of Brazil and the construction of an identity and political future of Portugal. (AU)
