Debates on the centrality of work

"The Economic Basis of the New Society"

by Dewey, John (1988)

Key Passage

"The problem of the adjustment of individual capacities and their development to actual occupations is not a one-sided or unilateral one. It is bilateral and reciprocal. It is a matter of the state of existing occupations, of the whole set-up of productive work;—of the structure of the industrial system" (p.319)
