The educational aspect of the philosophy of the seventeenth century in relationship with issues of Ethics and Bioethics.

This project is most important because to examine the dynamic nativism of Cartesian philosophy in which the reason is considered the energy which could generate their own ideas. In Descartes, what is "innate" is the power to form ideas but this does not mean, necessarily, to create them.

The Cartesian nativism has been considered as a point of intersection between ancient and modern, and the ancient becomes modern when the nativism is dynamically conceived and thanks to a considerable effort we end up with the conquest of the truth. This conception of nativism does not clash with the search of a method that is evaluated as the only way to find the truth.
