ORTEGA GUIZADO, Remberto. The Covid-19 pandemic as a limit experience of the sense of existence of the post-modern human being. Sophia [online]. 2021, n.30, pp.273-296. ISSN 1390-8626.

After the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, declared the pandemic situation on March 11, 2020, the world changed because, Covid-19 caused postmodern society to wonder about existence, on its meaning, on its end. However, once again, what is disturbing again is not the search for a conceptual answer, but one as a human existential experience. This article, based on a bibliographic research, presents a philosophical approach to the Covid-19 pandemic as a limit experience of the meaning of existence of the postmodern human being, which reveals the great ethical and human crisis that characterizes postmodernity, and therefore Through the hegemony of conceptual frameworks, it has placed thousands of human beings in existential destitution. For this reason, this work is limited to human experience in this context; which is done from the existential ontological, without necessarily implying intrinsic structures to being, as a categorical search but rather that the ontological is rooted in existence; in such a way that, allusion is made to the work of Butler (2006a) to try to avoid that the philosophical elucubration remains in the nominal conceptual, distorting the existential approach.

Palabras clave : Pandemic; vulnerability; hegemonic frameworks; nakedness of being; existential philosophy; face.
