Amor y lucha en tiempos de pandemia

Translated title of the contribution: Love and fight in times of pandemic

Ricardo Espinoza Lolas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article deals with the Covid-19 pandemic and how the human expresses himself at this time as a human who can love, but in a way beyond neurosis and the self. For this, in a dialogue with the depths of Hegel and with the art of Goya, Freud’s psychoanalysis and its determination of the human are criticized. And with Lacan and Žižek it is shown that love is possible, but in as much as the human is thought in a radically different way, that is, for example, through the monstrous side. And that monstrous side is the singular thing that cannot be caught in any category that tries to represent it.
