Coronavirus Pandemic: Nature Strikes back?

Keywords: Coronavirus, ontology, Nature, state surveillance, modernity

Abstract

Employing an ontological approach to the coronavirus pandemic, this essay problematizes the relationship between modernity and the Nature. I suggest that the notion of scientific conquest of the Nature is not only flawed, but also counter-productive to our progress. Moreover, I suggest that this notion is adding to the development of the authoritarian state with mass-surveillance infrastructure.
