Having contrasted the sparse readings made before and after the constitution of this group, this study is characterized by the converging of endeavors from different areas, by the insubordination to the party discipline and to the vulgates due to them simultaneously to the adhesion and support of the scholar discipline, by the emphasis in questions of method and theoretical penchant, mobilized, according to the area of each of the participants, to the elaboration of thesis which dialogue among themselves. The reconstitution of the conditioning lines of force of this innovation assumes following trajectory of social mobility, magisterial affiliations, generational tensions, gradient of empowerment, professionalization and discipline differentiation. The crystallization of horizontal relations with friends from the seminar; and verticals with the professor who they are connected with is present in their doctorate works.
