In this volume, Giorgio Agamben has collected all of his interventions regarding the current health emergency. Alongside and beyond accusations and exact descriptions, these texts variously reflect upon the Great Transformation affecting Western democracies. In the name of biosecurity and health, the model of bourgeois democracy–together with its rights, parliaments, and constitutions–is everywhere surrendering to a new despotism where citizens seem to accept unprecedented limitations to their freedoms.

This leads to the urgency of the volume’s title: Where Are We Now? For how long will we accept living in a constantly extended state of exception, whose end is impossible to see?
