Abstract


Abstract This article analyzes the discourses that enunciate bioethics in the medical field of Paraná between 1970 and 2005, identifying authors and meanings attributed to the term. This is a historiographical research on Arquivos journal, published by the Paraná Regional Medical Council since 1983, and Revista Médica do Paraná, published by the Medical Association of Paraná since 1931. The documentary corpus was analyzed from the perspective of cultural history. Bioethics was first mentioned in the journal Arquivos in 1988, in an article on brain death, and later in Revista Médica do Paraná, in 1996, in an article on the principles of bioethics, in an article on the principles of bioethics, both written by physicians and professors. Journals are educational devices, as they disseminate ethical and bioethical ideas of the medical class that have the potential to reverberate within the society and change behaviors. The bioethics listed in the sources is closely aligned with principlism and medical ethics. Keywords: Bioethics. Periodical. Address.
