A origem da bioética: uma interpretação à luz da ética e da teologia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The birth of bioethics represents an ethical growth on the part of humanity. It is a sign of a society which seeks to reach a post-conventional moral level, to use Lawrence Kohlberg’s terminology. This text seeks to justify this statement and to go further, in interpreting this same phenomenon from a theological perspective: when humanity becomes more responsible and creates better conditions for the protection of what is most fragile in life, this seems to correspond to the divine purpose of associating human beings with his creative and redeeming purpose.
