This revision article remakes in general guidelines the path to the Brazilian Bioethics in the planning of research and education autochthones lines from the relations between these lines and the social and historical process that consolidated the Brazilian Sanitary Reform. The works and theoretical perspectives selected have the proposal to act in the some scope, the social dimension; that relate to groups or particularly vulnerable segments that question the power relationship from the identification of the social inequalities as well as to the ones focused in the same orienting parameters, the Human Rights treaties; or the ones that included in its themathical rol the discussion about quality of life. The presentation of these distinct points of views of the Brazilian Bioethics are circumscribed at the tangential specifically relationed above and chronologically orientated from the creation of the "Bioethics" term in the North American academic environment.
