Labor of Fire: The Ontology of Labor between Economy and Culture (Labor In Crisis)
Bruno GulliISBN: 1592131131;
In Labor of Fire, Bruno GullA¬ offers a timely and much needed re-examination of the concept of labor. Distinguishing between "productive labor" (working for money or subsistence) and "living labor" (working for artistic creation), GullA¬ convincingly argues for a definition of work that recognizes the importance of artistic and social creativity to our definition of labor and the self. GullA¬ lays the groundwork for his book by offering a critique of productive labor, and then maps out his productive/living labor distinction in detail, reviewing the work of Marx and others.
