What is Humanizing Index
Philosophical reflections on humanization have become very important, mainly in view of the principle of scientific and social responsibility and the apparent impotance of ethics to act on technological human beings, who are capable of organizing, disorganizing and radically changing the foundations of life, that is, to create and/or destroy themselves.
The growing development of sciences and their applicability to human life lead human beings to an infinity of inquiries, perplexities and uncertainties that frequently provoke a profound value crisis, challenging professionals' ethical posture and their ability to conciliate new demands and competencies. Despite the indisputable benefits of technological progress, more specifically associated with the problem-solving capacity of therapeutic discoveries and health professionals' qualification, we need to discuss and redefine/reorient the limits that will establish how far human beings can or should go.
In this sense, a conscious and coherent philosophical reflection about the human values guiding the humanization process and the principle of social responsibility can help to problematize the actual needs, that is, the advantages and/or disadvantages progress imposes on health professionals' practice. Therefore, it should be reminded that the entire technical-scientific development related to life not only conducts human beings towards novelties associated with therapeutic hopes, but can also give rise to fears and enormous ethical dilemmas that challenge health professionals' practice.
