MENESES CARMONA, Daniel. BIOETHICS. PLACE AND PROBLEMS: AN APPROACH TO RESEARCH IN BIOETHICS. rev.latinoam.bioet. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp.106-117. ISSN 1657-4702.

This writing sketches matters about the place and the problem of bioethics like no trivial questions, as they don't have pre - existent answers, so they require investigation. In bioethics, the place inherits the rational, epistemological and ethical transformations that happened in those social interactions assumed as the context; Bioethics doesn't have an own and established place, it is located in a field that shapes itself only when we assume the question about life and the living. I propose the theory that bioethics constitutes itself when we introduce life as a problem in our daily being and what this entails the creation of new sensibilities for what we still have no felt, no thought and no valued. So, the place of bioethics reveals itself like a game of varied figures with those we can create other life options, we still have not experienced; all this refers to learning styles which expose us to changes and to narratives in which those are possible and can occur. This theory outlines itself in the perspective of bioethics like the knowledge of how to use knowledge.
