Beast and Man - what are humans and animals really like?

Jul 30, 2020

I've published a short piece on Covid, animals, and human nature in the Berlin Review of Books. It might be an interesting read for those of you who are interested in psychology, anthropology, zoology, politics, or philosophy.

The key idea is that this epidemic is the fault of real people and we should hold them responsible. Talk about bats, debating methods, etc. is mostly just the attempt of public decision makers to shift the blame to others.
