The Eclipse of the Utopias of Labor
by Rabinbach, Anson (2018)
The Eclipse of the Utopias of Labor brings together a series of essays bridging intellectual history and the history of the body tracing the shift from the eighteenth-century concept of man as machine to the late twentieth-century concept of digital organisms. The book looks at the rise and decline of "the great utopias of labor" in the first half of the twentieth century.
