ABSTRACT
In Portugal' 19th Century, Malthus's work gets reactions that range from acceptation with reserves to radical refutation, amidst some misunderstandings. Both the themes of overproduction and overpopulation are subject of comment. While very frequent by late 19th century, there's no record of clearcut populationist bias among the authors in consideration. Beyond the importance of the themes of colonization and emigration, it's worthy noting the close articulation of the refutations of Malthus with the pointing out of economic backwardness and excessive inequalities, as well as the emergence, by the end of this period, of Neo-Malthusian theses.
