In recent months much has been written and said about the pandemic, produced by coronavirus SARS-CoV2, which results in COVID-191 and which is causing deaths all over the world, affecting above all those social strata that, due to their own living conditions, do not know how to defend themselves.The book returns to the subject, examining the interactive play of the different factors that lie at the root of this dramatic social phenomenon and that constitutes yet another warning, from the most unheeded, about the real conditions of our planet and the possibility that life can continue to reproduce in it.Within the analysis of these different factors we wanted to pay particular attention to the economic dimension, convinced that there is a close correlation between the capitalist way of production, the manipulation of nature – and the upheaval of ecological structures and the biodiversity that it determines – and the genesis of pandemic events. In this regard, it is no coincidence that some scholars define the current era as the era of the Capitalocene, that is, the era of domination and the spread of capital on the entire planet, with particular attention to the consequences of this domination on the ecosystem.In order to better develop this approach and to connect the economic sphere to other aspects of social life, we have resorted to the contributions of various specialists (biologists, virologists, doctors, sociologists, philosophers, economists, jurists), but with an anti-reductionist sensibility. That is, able to focus the dimension of their relevance without obfuscating the complex relationships between this and the other levels of social life.
