Resumen

Este artículo indaga en los fundamentos ideológicos del imperialismo portugués de posguerra, donde se detectan algunas tensiones conceptuales características de la justificación del dominio imperial en la modernidad tardía, como son la preocupación por el declive y la desviación de las ambiciones imperiales. De este modo, el artículo se centra en explorar cómo la teoría de Gilberto Freyre fue apropiada para legitimar las demandas portuguesas de sus posesiones de ultramar, y cómo la ideología del lusotropicalismo resultante siguió ejerciendo su influencia mucho después del fin del imperio portugués. Al destapar las tensiones estructurales y conceptuales de esta ideología, este artículo trata de desvelar algunos de los dilemas a los que se tiene que enfrentar cualquier esquema imperial en un mundo de estados con continuidad territorial y homogeneidad cultural, donde éstos se erigen como los únicos actores legitimados para reclamar la autoridad soberana.
