This open issue questions the relation between subject and power: what is the substance and appearance of the sovereign, what are the domains and limits of state power, and what are the effects of governance in the time of a health scare. Two short texts by Giorgio Agamben show how a religion of science became a tool to administer an exceptional governmentality under the recent pandemic.
