How Covid has masked our faces (like slaves)

… It is impossible to have a relationship with anyone without recognising their face

… the slave was defined as ἀπρόσωπος (apròsopos), that is without (a-) face (pròsopos), therefore without dignity

… «what is called face, which cannot exist in any living being except in humankind, indicates the character of a person»

… to the point of allowing a glimpse of the Infinite

… «they have lost the immediate and sensitive foundation of their community and can only exchange direct messages to a name that no longer has a face»

… «Our impolitic time does not want to see its own face, it keeps it at a distance, it masks and covers it. There must be no more faces, only numbers and figures. Even the tyrant is faceless»
