CASTRO, Gillianno José Mazzetto de  and  COSTA, Márcio Luís. The vulnerability as acommon life condition. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.spe, pp. 46-66. ISSN 2238-152X.

This article aims to think about the contexts of the COVID-19 pandemic from the category of vulnerability understood as the original opening for and in life. For this purpose, a phenomenological study based on Henrian phenomenological approach will be carried out, which asks about the possibility and dynamics of modifying life within the contexts provided by the pandemic. To do so, a distinction will be made between fragility and vulnerability, then the idea of the double appearing, and affectation will be explored as proving oneself with others in one's own life, and finally, some contexts and possible interlocutions will be considered for psychological research and practices within this scenario. As conclusions, it can be observed that the pandemic has produced an dimension, namely, the exploration of the idea of life habit not only as practices, but as a flow and as an affective bond previous to the idea of subject.

Keywords : Psychology; Phenomenology; COVID-19.
