Abstract

During the crisis caused by the expansion of the Covid-19, its impact has been measured by different sciences and perspectives. In this reflective commentary, it is noted that from Philosophy, one can also identify significant repercussions for a post-pandemic world, especially in the area of Ethics and Critical Phenomenology. In order to develop those ideas, the text is divided into two sections. In the first part, it will be addressed briefly and from different perspectives what to understand as death and social death. And in the second part, we will advance what ethical turn is and why it is more necessary today.

Keywords: Social Death, Ethical Turn, Covid-19, Critical Phenomenology, Ethics, philosophy
