This review is from: Work (The Art of Living) (Paperback)
In Work Lars Svendsen takes us on a tour of this phenomenon starting with a discussion about how previous philosophers and societies have considered its place in life - he notes the ancient Greeks were largely against it and that it was not generally thought of something worthwhile until the protestant reformation. He goes on to explore the meaning of work, its distribution, work and leisure and getting paid amongst several other topics connected with it. Easy to read, but thoughtful at the same time and with some ideas that might surprise the reader - very good.
