A poesia entrevista: uma bio-grafia de Armando Freitas Filho
Diniz, Marcelo;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2003000200010
Abstract: this text intends to treat a non-literary register as a literary space, through the interpretation of an interview given by the poet armando freitas filho. if the interview, in principle, is offered to the fantasy of inter-subjectivity and of immediate meaning apprehension - even more in this case since the interview concerns an author of literature - armando's interview seems to configure an exercise of resistance to fantasy, expanding the erotic space of his own work. the interview, finally, presents itself as the space of a bio-graphy, a live writing exercise of the poetic experience.

Diniz, Debora;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X1996000300008
Abstract: this study deals with the ethical premises of medical treatment for children with serious cerebral palsy. eight months of ethnographic research were carried out with patients at the cerebral palsy center in the sarah hospital in salvador, bahia, brazil. observation of treatment for these children, who displayed limited clinical change, led to the following question, as suggested by discussions from medical deontology: what is the purpose of medical treatment for children with serious cerebral palsy? the results of our research point to social and humanist explanations going beyond the official medical scientific explanation, which limits treatment to corporal mechanicism.

Diniz, Debora;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2003000100019
Abstract: the ethical principle of reproductive autonomy is one of the cornerstones of bioethical theories. prenatal diagnostic techniques and advances in genetics have broadened the spectrum of possibilities for reproductive choice. consequently, they allow for selection in diagnosed cases of fetal malformation, for instance. this article analyzes the case of deafness, in particular the argument from the deaf community that supports the birth of deaf children as a way of maintaining its cultural identity. the article discusses the community's culturalist argument that deafness should not be considered a disability. furthermore, the article considers the extent to which reproductive decisions by potential parents could limit the development of their future children.

Diniz, Debora;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2005000200032
Abstract: the case against non-compliance with the fundamental principle concerning anencephaly, under review by the brazilian supreme court, is a milestone in the debate on abortion in latin america. since the currently prevailing version of the brazilian penal code was enacted in 1940, there has been fierce resistance to any change in the country's abortion policy. this article discusses the arguments and political strategies used in the anencephaly suit brought before the supreme court, particularly the ethical and legal position that interruption of pregnancy in cases of anencephaly does not constitute abortion, but should be considered a therapeutic anticipation of delivery.
