Abstract:
Considering the free and general access to education, knowledge and culture as an imperative feature of a modern, developed society, it is of utmost importance the action and the example of those who personify such a civilizational aim, as Bento de Jesus Caraça so well did. In this paper we try to point out the universalistic concept of culture as the main legacy of this outstanding individuality of the Portuguese twentieth century, as well as the civic and political dimension of his permanent struggle to turn such concept into reality.

Keywords: Bento de Jesus Caraça; culture; general access to culture
