This proposal is based on the experience in scientific and higher education trends in the world over the past decades. The focus of interest is bioethics as a young scientific discipline (in the world from the '70s and in Croatia from the '80s and early '90s) which comes up with a series of valuable ideas aimed to overcome some old divisions in the academic and educational world. The first part of the article analyses some prerequisites for proper understanding and implementation of this project. A need is stressed to surpass the uncontainable processes of fragmentation in science through a holistic approach in scientific thinking. Bioethics as a normative discipline considers as detrimental any hegemony of one science over another, and this view is derived from the holistic approach to reality. The second part of the article emphasises the importance of bioethical consciousness which should be based on the sense of responsibility as well as an interdisciplinary bioethical dialogue as a prerequisite for the very existence of bioethics. After individualising and explaining a series of suppositions, the third part of the article elaborates on the organisation, goals and tasks of the proposed Centre.
