Open peer commentary on the article “The Lived Experience of Being Fragile: On Becoming more “Living” During the Pandemic” by Natalie Depraz. Abstract: The experience of fragility is part of the uncertainty surrounding the Covid epidemic. I see Depraz’s experience as involving two types of cognitive processes, one lighter than the other. The former emerges from the changes in everyday living that we can anticipate, and the latter requires a more radical personal change. I suggest distancing as a way of thinking about this process in the hope that this does not diminish her target article’s insights. Ultimately, I wonder if my constructivist perspective can account for the micro-phenomenological approach presented by Depraz.
