Debates on the centrality of work

Towards a New Manifesto

by Adorno, T W; Horkheimer, M (2019)

Key Passage

Work exists to control the hardships of life, to ensure the reproduction of mankind… it does not necessarily or certainly reproduce the lives of those who work, but only of those who induce those to work for them. In order to persuade human beings to work you have to fob them off with the waffle about work as the thing in itself. (p.8)
