Amid the harrowing losses of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was also the potential for radical empathy wrought by shared experience. Jacqueline Rose’s The Plague takes the pandemic as a starting point to unravel recent history via the lives and works of three extraordinary thinkers, Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, and Simone Weil. Join Rose and Charlotte Higgins for an emotive and enlightening discussion.
