Abstract: This paper intends to explore the social and political engagement of a Portuguese public intellectual, Boaventura Sousa Santos. Along with his academic work and social activism, the sociologist assumes the need to invigorate the European civitas throughout the emergence of privileged players that should be forging new synergies, alternative social movements and inspiring new forms of reflection and demands. It will also be brought to discussion how the resurgence of critical intervention and political engagement of civic-minded intellectuals, like Boaventura Sousa Santos in the public arena has been contributing to a greater vitality and re-politicization of the European public sphere.
