Brazilian sociologist, writer and columnist who holds a PhD in human geography. While in 2012, he was named by the Época magazine as one of the "New Right's shrill voices.", Magnoli considers himself a centre-left social-democrat.
He was professor of Political Geography and Urban Geography at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP). Since 1993, he has been the editorial director of the newsletter Mundo: Geografia e Política Internacional ("World: Geography and International Politics").
Magnoli published his first book, O que é Geopolítica? ("What is Geopolitics?"), in 1986. In 1997 he was a finalist for the Jabuti Prize, competing with the book O Corpo da Pátria: imaginação geográfica e política externa no Brasil, 1808–1912 ("The Body of the Nation: geographical imagination and foreign policy in Brazil, 1808–1912", UNESP).
He was a columnist for the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo (2004–2006), and since then has written for O Estado de S. Paulo and O Globo, besides contributing to the magazine Época and providing comments about international politics for the Jornal das Dez on Globo News.
