HERZOG, Regina  and  CAMARA, Leonardo. Ferenczi and the catastrophe: the breaking of the boundaries. Trivium [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.2, pp.62-77. ISSN 2176-4891.

This article aims to reflect on the COVID-19 pandemic based on the concept of catastrophe, as formulated by the Hungarian psychoanalyst Sándor Ferenczi. For this, initially, an epistemological investigation of the concept is carried out in order to delimit the specific meanings it acquires in the author's work. Then, the relation between pandemic and catastrophe is made from the vital act of breathing, which became an ethical and political problem.
