Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper shows how a racional ethics began as an autonomous discourse in the portughese university, together with the moral theology, from XVI until XVIII century. After the Pombal reformation, rational ethics follows two ways: the first separates ethics from theology; the second, maintains ethical discouse openess to theology and religious faith. That is the case of Amorim Viana and Newton de Macedo philosophical work.
