Yannis Ktenas’s research program uses the Weberian concept of “value polytheism” to examine the ethico-political debates around the Coronavirus pandemic. Various and indeed incompatible forms of rationality can be shaped starting from different value premises, a hypothesis that can be verified through the study of public stances towards the pandemic. However, this does not mean that every value-oriented approach is equally plausible. A consistent use of our faculty of judgement is required in order to orient ourselves in the landscape of polytheism.
