The dilemma of work. It’s become a prevalent topic here at Exist Anew and something we all seem to struggle with on a complex variety of levels. Can we be truly free if we must work countless hours to “succeed?” And have we been conned into thinking that “hard work” is in our best interest and connected to our meaning, purpose and value as a human? Can there be a fair system of work to support so many people?
We were honored to have University of Southern Maine Professor of Philosophy and author, Jason Read, join us for a podcast conversation to shed light on these topics and more. Professor Read engaged us with some powerful thoughts regarding work from a historical, societal and individual perspective while discussing the importance of Philosophy within this issue and at large. We have had the honor of speaking with some truly insightful and provocative guests as part of the Exist Anew podcast series and this conversation with Professor Read was no exception. We want to thank Professor Read and encourage you to check out his blog www.unemployednegativity.com and for more information regarding his professorship, go here.
