A Philosophy & COVID-19 Bibliography


[Note from the editor: this post originally appeared in April but I’ve moved it to the top of the page as I’ve been getting inquiries about pandemic-related works by philosophers. Jef Delvaux has continued to maintain the bibliography he started. Please contact him with additions, or mention them in the comments.] Jef Delvaux, a Ph.D. student in philosophy at York University, has undertaken the project of putting together a bibliography of writings by philosophers about the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues.

The bibliography is divided into three sections: academic philosophy, written public philosophy, and non-written media. Mr. Delvaux notes that the bibliography is a work in progress, so perhaps further categorizations will be added at some point.

To add material to the bibliography, contact Mr. Delvaux at [email protected] or via Twitter, where his handle is @JefDelvaux.

The bibliography is below. You can also access it directly here.

I’ve been collecting resources on Pandemic Ethics at the UNC Center for Bioethics website. Hopefully Jef and others find it helpful. My list is directed more at people advising hospitals and policymakers so it leaves out a lot of the good stuff Jef has collected – e.g. on the ethics of shopping or the value of work. https://bioethics.unc.edu/pandemic-ethics-resources/

Hello. I’ve been updating a similar list in French (and a little bit in English) on here with a colleague: https://medium.com/@ferry.danini/ressources-philosophiques-sur-lépidémie-du-covid-19-39f4c2a34bb Report

Those philosophers and students of philosophy who want to keep one eye on the proverbial big picture, may find helpful one or more of the following bibliographies (constraints: books, in English) with more or less family resemblance to each other available (to view or download as pdf. doc) on my Academia page: (i) Transdisciplinary Perspectives on Addiction; (ii) Alternative and Complementary Medicine; (iii) Bioethics; (iv) Biological Psychiatry, Sullied Psychology and Pharmaceutical Reason; (v) Buddhism and Psychoanalysis; (vi) Death and Dying; (vii) Diseases, Epidemics, and Pandemics; (viii) Health and Social Justice; (ix) Psychoanalytic Psychology and Therapy; and (x) Sullied (Natural and Social) Sciences. I welcome suggestions for additional titles to any of these compilations. Report

I have written several posts about COVID-19 and, in particular, about COVID-19 and disability at BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY: https://biopoliticalphilosophy.com/

My discussion with Alison Reiheld in the installment of Dialogues on Disability that I posted yesterday included remarks about the pandemic too.

Hey, we have tried to kickstart a bibliography on the philosophy forum on reddit – I think Jozef’s bibliography is more encompassing though.
