Throughout its history each people constructed its culture: its language, its folklore and customs, its artistic religion and its manifestations, its specific form of familiar relations, its history and its historic site, among others typical and defining elements of the people. Exactly becoming related with other peoples and other cultures, this ' ' I cultural' ' if autodefine for its differences in relation to its neighbors, ' ' outros' ' that also they consist from specific characteristics. thus, if we asked in what it defines or it identifies them each people, we seriamos led to the following reply: its culture. The identity of the people is its culture and its culture is its ' ' eu' '. the other? In cultural relation to this I all the too much cultures am ' ' outros' '.

' ' another one cultural' ' nothing more he is of what a distinct culture of that one from which if he speaks. Therefore Brazil, even so adopts the Portuguese as official language, is not Portugal nor Angola, where also Portuguese says itself. For us Brazil is ours ' ' I cultural' ' while Portugal and Angola are ' ' outros' ': other countries, other cultures, other realities, other peoples, other necessities, other forms to solve problems. But we only can say of this ' ' outro' ' from contextualizao and one ' ' eu' ' that we characterize as ours ' ' culture brasileira' ' Throughout history, each society if autodefiniu in a relation of contraposition in relation to other societies. It could occur for times that in an ample territory as it occurred in the Roman empire, for example, existed subculturas, in general formed for the dominated peoples. However the dominador imposed its language, its main customs, its deuses, its belief, of official form. This situation produced constant typical insatisfao and constants revolts in case that of the Jews, under Greek and Roman domain of the loosers whom they intended to keep its cultural elements without the intervention of the foreigners.
