Is the work ethic still viable as society evolves? This book engages with widespread current anxieties about the future of work and its place in a fulfilled human life. It is a philosophical treatment of the nature of work and reconsiders the aims and procedures of education. The author calls for a reshaping of school as the work culture has come to know it
