This document contains a proposal for the international stage and its work plan to be carried out in Portugal. This project, which comprises the doctoral research "The neo-Darwinian voice about human: the new historical and social meanings of bioscience ontology", it want to capture and analyze the historical and social significance of deterministic-reductionist contemporaneously drawing through the theoretical geneticismo neo-Darwinian. Inaugurated in the 1970s with Sociobiology, the neo-Darwinian voice about human became a theoretical foundation of the knowledge areas that give the social being an ontological equity to be natural. Operating as a scientific theoretical matrix for the answers "What is Man?", the life sciences today are manifested in many different social practices and control devices. Our goal, therefore, is to understand the economic political reasons for the spread and materialization of such biologizing discourses in contemporary sociability in order to capture their meaning in social contradictions. The hypothesis lies in the fact that the system of neo-Darwinian ideas operate as an "ideal time" to the reproduction of capital to biotech corporations linked to genomics market. With this, we will continue and deepen the understanding of some of the current biocientíficas invested in the construction of narratives and explanations to questions that traditionally constituted objects of Human Sciences, trying to capture what is actually new in their historical and social meanings.
