dc.description.abstractPandemic-related restrictions can be especially tragic for people whose lives are endings; it seems that the needs and desires of people who are dying should be given extra consideration. Given an additivist view of well-being, however, the last weeks of a person's life can only matter so much relative to the rest of the life they had. This article reflects on the end of my mother's life during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to make the case that the additive view of well-being is part of a broader trend of dehumanizing emergency ethics.
