GUERRA, Andréa Máris Campos et al. Vulnerability and Coronavirus: the political turn of psychoanalysis on the issue. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.51, pp. 537-549. ISSN 2175-1390.

The article presents a psychoanalytic analysis of the notion of vulnerability articulated to the current context of the new coronavirus pandemic. Based on the inflection on the theme, guided by the logic of the unconscious, the text questions the contributions that the reading of psychoanalysis can bring about the social and economic context of vulnerabilities that emerged in it. As methodological approach, the article presents a theoretical-conceptual review of vulnerability and helplessness, inserting them in the context of the new Coronavirus pandemic. Each term is based on its respective theoretical-conceptual fields, establishing critical and reflective dialogues with contemporary thinkers, in an interface with knowledge in the field of human sciences. The results emphasize that the terms vulnerability and helplessness maintain their specificities in their conceptual fields of origin, but they are mixed when they represent different levels of alterity, whether incarnated in the parental, institutional, social or political Other.

Palabras clave : Vulnerability; Psychoanalysis; Public policy; Pandemic.
