Resocialization and Readaptation as a Social Need of Post-Corona Period

Shaojie Ding, Lyubov Kalashnyk


Pandemic of Coronavirus COVID19 faced the world with a new social phenomena: worldwide quarantine and self-isolation of countries and regions as well as families and individuals. Prolongation of this situation has already led to disappearance or global transformation of subjects` interaction old forms (absolutely of all forms and at all the levels), rapid emergence of new types of communication (in particular) and being (in general) and the need for the world to be adapted to new realities when the post-Corona period comes. The authors of the article make the assumption that the old ways and principles of life will no longer fit the post-quarantine realities. People and countries will have to re-develop the rules of interaction in society (both at local and global levels) urgently. To have the society as a monolithic concept again, countries will have to conduct their population through the processes of re-socialization (in cases of new priciples` development ) or social re-adaptation (in cases when it is still possible to apply the pre-Corona social algorithms to post-Corona conditions). The other assumption made is that in post-Corona period (at least, at the beginning) we shall deal with new forms of subject-subject intersection where the subjects stand for expanded personal space with clearer boundaries.
