In this online lecture, Dr Emmanuel Nathan will analyse how and why the COVID crisis has managed to galvanise us, as a species, into immediate and sometimes radical action. He will argue that this difference is related to human conceptualisations of the future. By exploring resources from the theological tradition, as well as recent philosophical work on themes such as memory and forgetting, Dr Nathan will present a radical new interpretation of the shift that has been wrought by the global pandemic.
