An Inquiry Into the Value of Work

Audiobook CD - 2009
Rate this:
On both economic and psychological grounds, Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a "knowledge worker, " based on a misguided separation of thinking from doing, the work of the hand from that of the mind. Crawford shows us how such a partition, which began a century ago with the assembly line, degrades work for those on both sides of the divide. He then offers a passionate call for self-reliance and a moving reflection on how we can live concretely in an ever more abstract world.
