Qué salió mal: el coronavirus y el mundo después del pare total

Main Article Content


Carlo Caduff


Este artículo examina la respuesta global a la pandemia de covid-19. Argumenta que es urgente ver más allá del virus para entender la verdadera gravedad de lo
que está sucediendo hoy. ¿Cómo terminamos en un espacio de pensamiento, acción y sentimiento que ha normalizado los extremos y se basa en el supuesto de que la vida biológica es un valor absoluto separado de la política? El autor sugiere que el temor actual es alimentado por los modelos matemáticos de la enfermedad, las políticas de salud neoliberales, los informes nerviosos de los medios y los anhelos autoritarios.
