We increasingly understand the value of the Portuguese language, and therefore the importance of Lusophone studies and realities. The question is whether there is a legal Lusophone reality, and if there may be an autonomous philosophical reflection using Portuguese Language and reflecting its genious. But more important than a language considered as a mere means of communication, is to consider it as well as forming a spirit. And therefore the most important is to ask what is the spirit or Lusophone culture that may exist inside law. The similarities between the Brazilian Constitution and the Portuguese Constitution may be a starting point.
