Dwivedi (ed.): Virality of Evil

Divya Dwivedi, member of the ICLA theory committee, is the editor of Virality of Evil: Philosophy in the Time of a Pandemic. The volume, published with Rowman & Littlefield, invites us to revaluate the notion of evil, valorizing it as perhaps the only notion through which philosophy can reflect on the pandemic. This is a collective meditation that takes a plural approach to the sufferings of different parts of the world, deploying a stance dedicated to place and specificity. Their distinct contributions arise from multiple traditions, with voices from within and beyond the so-called Western canon.
