State management of Covid-19: severe verticality drifts

The health crisis has been going on for four months. The danger of an epidemic seems to be receding but the human, social and economic damage is revealing itself every day. Already the first assessments of our country's attitude during the crisis are taking shape. The Montaigne Institute has just published a detailed report analysing the action taken by our country during the crisis.

Between two worlds

However, in the uncertainty that now holds us back, there is one certainty: what we are experiencing - and are about to experience - is indecipherable with the software of the world before us. Impossible to invent a new human society with these references! The challenge had already been posed during

Women on the move

In our post-viral world, major issues concerning the environment, education, and international relations arise.

Geopolitics: everything has already changed, everything will change even more.

The acuity of the historical nature of the coronavirus comes largely from the triple conjunction of the immediacy of its impact, the consequences of its global magnitude and the evidence of its transformative nature. With a swiftness and certainty rarely so combined in international relations, there is a palpable consensus that the coronavirus is the most powerful virus of all.

Crises, metaphors and risk management

Metaphors often allow for a better understanding of as many risk or hazard situations as possible, as in the case of the Covid-19 pandemic. They appear in almost every area of our lives, even penetrating research laboratories and playing a central role in

For an economy of consideration

For an economy of consideration

The pandemic confronts us with reality, our interdependencies, our vulnerabilities. It reminds us that it is futile to believe in world domination. Our rightful involvement lies in the art of composing, negotiating and resonating. So it all starts with consideration. To consider this virus, what it does to us.

Désarrois

For weeks we have been witnessing a series of "world reversals". The Covid19 pandemic comes to us from China. Is it the result of a transfer from animals to humans, a scientific error, or a "virological war"? Whatever the outcome of the "we are at war"...

How containment disturbs our perception of space-time

How containment disturbs our perception of space-time

For the physicist-philosopher Etienne Klein, confinement upsets our conception of space-time. It is true that the time of physics does not change: one minute always lasts sixty seconds, but it is our perception of time that changes in this confined space where everything becomes softer, without rhythm, a time

Coming out of confinement: will we give up democratic mobilisation?

On Tuesday, the Prime Minister will present the framework for the government's plan to break out of containment. It would be neither understandable nor acceptable that the field expertise gained from the Covid-19 test should not be considered an indispensable resource in the argumentation of post-containment policy decisions. No tangible signs, beyond

Misery of the government through fear and disproportion

Following Jean-François Toussaint, who in the same magazine began to denounce the collateral damage of blind containment instead of targeting, and Alessandro Baricco, who dared to use the iconoclastic word "disproportion" to characterize anti-coronavirus measures, let us hope that it is still possible that fear will give way.
