Title Coronavirus Pandemic: Nature Strikes back?
 
Creator Ali, Shehzad
 
Subject Coronavirus
ontology
Nature
state surveillance
modernity
 
Description 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.
