GARCIA HERNANDEZ, Alfonso Miguel. Benito… a propósito de Josué. Un estudio fenomenológico del duelo por la muerte de un hijo. Ene. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.1, 1311.  Epub Oct 01, 2019. ISSN 1988-348X.

The current work is encompassed in qualitative research, from the hermeneutic-phenomenological paradigm perspective. It is carried out from a narrative analysis of the texts and conversations shared with Benito over the last few years. It incorporates and analyses the texts written and related as testimonies, in terms of experiences felt, manifested and lived, in such a way, that it situates the explanatory categories in a broader framework that forms part of the continuity of links with the deceased son.

Benito moves us closer to the path of grief deepening, on the one hand, into the ideas associated with nonmeaning and pain for the absence of the deceased son and, on the other hand, going through the plane of living, remembering, transcending and carrying out certain socio-cultural practices. They allow him to remain connected to his son Josué, who died as a consequence of a traffic accident. And all of it is developed in a scenario in which the narratives reveal the nature of the encounters of connection and interaction.

Keywords : grief; death of a son; phenomenology; continuing bonds; Facebook.
