GADOTTI, Claudia Morelli. Will we be living in an even more soulful world post-pandemic?. Junguiana [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.2, pp. 9-20. ISSN 2595-1297.

Springing from the Hillmanian idea of affinity between the soul and death, this essay questions whether the experience lived through during the Covid-19 pandemic might provide an opportunity for a more soulful world. Believing that the soul in a competitive society becomes de-eroticized and a hostage of the power complex, the question raised is what would be the way to salvage this at this time of collective trauma. In order to discourse on this question, the author relates the myth of Eros and Psyche in an attempt, through its dynamic, to understand how the myth guides us in the search for Eros and, consequently, rescuing the soul. Brazil is the scenario in which this observation and interpretation is being developed. ■

Keywords : Eros; power; soul; materialism; pandemic; Brazil.
