A geopolítica: saber criado na modernidade: O exemplo português

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present article, taking into account the Portuguese case, demonstrates that the geopolitical knowledge is a knowledge of modernity, one that could hardly have produced any practical results before the end of the eighteenth century. Thus, it is explained why the ancient world and the medieval period are not geopolitical epochs. Besides, in order to be classified as such, one would have to presume the existence of international relations, which were not configured before the beginning of the Early Modern Age.
