Snapshots from home: mind, action and strategy in an uncertain world

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Taking a broadly interdisciplinary approach, this book provides a unique angle on the Covid-19 pandemic and its implications for global theory and practice. Bridging two important debates regarding the relevance of quantum theory to the social sciences, and the pressing need for a more global IR, the book brings the parallel between quantum physics and ancient Asian traditions – Daoism and Buddhism – to an investigation of mind, action and strategy in conditions of radical uncertainty. Engaging with both theory and real world problems, from climate change to the pandemic itself to economic and racial inequality, Snapshots from Home explores what it might mean to successfully navigate the potentials of a post-pandemic world.
