The invention of an epidemic -- Contagion -- Clarifications -- Where are we now? -- Reflections on the plague -- The state of exception has become the rule -- Social distancing -- A question -- Bare life -- New reflections -- On truth and falsity -- Medicine as religion -- Biosecurity and politics -- Polemos epidemios -- Requiem for the students -- Two notorious terms -- Law and life -- State of emergency and state of exception -- The face and the mask -- What is fear? -- On the time to come.

"Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben presents an account of the political upheavals that ensued as the COVID-19 pandemic brought his country-and with it his countrymen's personal liberties-to a crashing halt. While controversial, Agamben's reflections on the transformation of Western democracies hold implications far beyond any present crisis"
