The Trascendentals of Work

Num°01 WORK

A misunderstanding should be eliminated: that is, that work and rights can be separated. Those who assert such a theory think that reality is made of indipendent layers. According to them, it is always possible to remove the upper layer (in this case, rights) and keep the lower (in this case, labor/work). Rights (for example,  the non-precariousness of work) are an addition, whereas work can exist also independently: the addition is unessential. The thesis I argue for in this essay is, on the contrary, that the addition is intrinsic and originary. Leggi tutto »


Work in the Richness of Humanity

Num°01 WORK

This essay focuses on the importance of human work in its partial meaning within an anthropological view that also includes action and contemplation. More precisely, one could say that an increasing risk in our society is that of falling into the alienation caused by work when it reduces human life to being an instrumental dimension of the productivistic mechanism. Conversely, only a just measure of work within human activities as a whole can guarantee the richness of work and its ethical dignity. The discussion of the theoretical issue is supported by a brief comparison of some major philosophers with respect to their evaluation of work. Leggi tutto »


Work and Human Nature

Num°01 WORK

This essay highlights the main issues that concern the transformation of work within a global-knowledge economy. Emphasis is placed on the anthropological background that post-Fordist capitalism lets emerge for the first time. The essay concludes by arguing that an analogous attention should be placed on the differences that, in the contemporary age, continue to exist among various individuals and not simply between past and present or between human beings and animals.

The Ethos of Bourgeois Working in Max Scheler

Num°01 WORK

Max Scheler’s reflections on Arbeit span throughout his entire philosophical career. His starting point is the questioning of both the genealogical-historical nature of the bourgeois attitude toward work and its philosophical ground. These paths meet in the ethical foundation of different worldviews according to an axiological value hierarchy. Human praxis and poiesis, whether individual or social, reflect an original order of preferences, an ethos. The bourgeois work-attitude is grounded on an inversion of the original tension toward elevation and contemplation in the direction of a self-enclosed, accumulative, and frenzied productive pathos.

The End of Work and the Paradoxes of Autonomy

Num°01 WORK

This paper addresses two issues. The first is a question regarding the relevance of Gorz’s diagnosis concerning the end of the work society. Can we still develop a critique of the current system of work on the basis of such a position? The second has to do with finding an alternative to the work society. Such an alternative could be the society of autonomy. Leggi tutto »
