In my analysis of his work, I divide his system of thought into six parts: (1) his struggle with the orthodox philosophical ideas of the mid twentieth century in order to emphasize the primacy of mans inner world- (2) his attempt to find a unique philosophical voice in the world of art- (3) the crucial discovery of the work of Fernando Pessoa, from which he derives the idea that literature is a fundamental tool to shed light on Portugal and its cultural myths- (4) his recurrent call for poets to elaborate counter-images of Portugal, because it is with adventure and imagination that a country develops its own identity- (5) the idea that Europe is first and foremost a cultural creation, and so without art the continents spiritual journey is condemned to collapse- and (6), his tragic view of our times, which is closely linked with a certain splendor, that is, the notion that our era is dangerous, threatening, unbearable, but there is always a way of transforming this chaos into irresistible artistic counter-images.

All in all, Lourenco interlaces philosophy and literature in order to claim that poets are the best philosophical commentators on national, European, and world identity.
