This contribution has two main objectives. The first is to isolate and define a particular trait of the CO VID-19 pandemic, namely its zoonotic character, in order to evaluate its importance in relation to other characteristics of this global health crisis. The second is to consider how the widespread awareness of the zoonotic character of the pandemic can change the view that the human species has of itself — its ‘perceived identity’, so to speak. Finally, we will try to understand whether the relationships, both practical and axiological, that the human species has with non-human animals can be influenced by this identity transformation.

Abstract

This contribution has two main objectives. The first is to isolate and define a particular trait of the CO VID-19 pandemic, namely its zoonotic character, in order to evaluate its importance in relation to other characteristics of this global health crisis. The second is to consider how the widespread awareness of the zoonotic character of the pandemic can change the view that the human species has of itself — its ‘perceived identity’, so to speak. Finally, we will try to understand whether the relationships, both practical and axiological, that the human species has with non-human animals can be influenced by this identity transformation.
