Reading Sass: Outlook of the Post-Pandemic Humman Society and Its Re-Making
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on human life thrown societies across the world into disarray. This article provides a brief reading of and commentary on the article “The coronavirus also attacks political and corporate bodies” by Prof. Hans-Martin Sass. Sass, with his deep concern about the future of human society, assumes a higher vantage point than particular sociopolitical issues to discuss the more fundamental question of interconnectedness in human societies. The pandemic is only one of many potential serious threats to social and political institutions. COVID-19 has hit the world at a time of fragmentation, localism, and disarray. Sass raises substantial questions about what the world in general, and China in particular, may need to consider to ensure the success of rebuilding. Paradoxically, some authors suggest that the pandemic may be an opportunity for sociopolitical reconciliation and sustainable human development in the post-pandemic era.
