Sergio Buarque of Holland works a parallel between ideal types, a structure that if guideline in types ' ' ideals opostos' '. It uses the ideal types of Weber to work with the traditional action, action accomplishes, relative action the ends and relative action the values. On its workmanship it is based on the interpretation, rationality, inquiry, erudio, objective and intuition. Holland promotes a distinction between knowledge of the society, the nature and the emptica understanding. We can perceive that Holland searchs to recognize our Iberian roots; affirming that the Portuguese at the discovery moment were not total European; therefore it had a correlation between Europeans, Africans and arabiado, therefore the Portuguese mentality was not ' ' total original' '. In short, analysis we notice that Holland promotes a differentiation between Portuguese and Spaniard; of a side the Portuguese, men adventurers whom the plasticity used, but at the same time do not construam its cities with planning and organization with the Spaniard.
Thus we can notice that in way the construction of the Brazilian society, appears the man cordial, a constructed ideal type in Brazil. Holland the being cordial is that one that it knows to act in way to the social processes; a work carried through with the heart, aggressive an affectionate relation and at the same time. In the dawn of the analysis we find with regard to the man cordial problematic that if structure in violent bases. Formulating our Brazilian identity in a gift that denies the past and closes the openings for the future; therefore we can notice that Holland searchs to make a fruitful quarrel regarding the past, gift and future of Brazil.
