Este texto analiza qué es la fragilidad, las múltiples formas en que se ha interpretado y las diversas maneras en que podemos interpretarla. La primera sección parte de algunas reflexiones etimológicas e históricoculturales. En la segunda se discuten algunos paradigmas de la fragilidad y algunos modelos existenciales e históricos: desde la antigüedad hasta la modernidad y la posmodernidad. En la parte final, se abordan las ambigüedades que esconde el término resiliencia y se discute la llamada teoría de lo antifrágil, indicando sus posibilidades y límites.
