Andre Gorz considers technological advancements and developments that save our time as economic rationalization. He presents various examples ranging from fast food to grocery apps and childcare etc. His concepts of economic rationalization to save more time for leisure activities, mimics capitalism as in capitalism the labor actually sells their time to get wages. So, the people actually doing all these task are spending more time and having no leisure time while people benefiting from these services are enjoying it. The argument is same as it is in capitalism that if the labors can accumulate enough amounts to spend, then…

Movability of wealth always remained a topic of interest in human history. In very early ages, human were not supposed to store, accumulate and have more than required. They used to have land what they could process and cultivate and then enjoy the outcome on their own. Even if they store a bit, it was for their own personal use but not for transferring to anyone or not even as a status symbol. Later in history, people started gathering and exchanging goods and services and started having collaborations. There human learned and discovered few rules that later lead foundation of…

Hegel’s theory of recognition is based on a principle of mutuality and emphases that it’s bi-directional and recognition involves freedom, respect, empathy and compassion. When we talk about relationship between individuals and institutions, it has lot to do with the “meaning” of things and inclusion. An individual needs to relate to institutions in order to feel that he belongs and hence is supposed to abide by those rule & regulations, norms and values. The institutions focus on “good and right”. Now, the point here is that what is right? What is the context for being right and good? Something that…

Marxist theory of exploitation refers to the point that the labors are paid very less than the amount of commodities the produce and hence they are exploited by the capitalist who owns the assets of production. If the labor argues about it, there are always a lot of options available for a capitalist to replace the labor and hire a new one who will be willing to do the same job in fewer wages. Marx’s concept is under study and debate for a long period of time and people sometimes agrees to it and sometimes not. The main problem with…

‘Work’ as we know it, is a modern invention, writes André Gorz.

Elaborate on the distinctive features of the modern notion of labor that emerged with the advent of manufacturing capitalism.

Work & Labor under capitalism has become a commodity and the labor time and services can be bought for a certain amount of money called “wage” that is always quite lesser than the actual cost of that time and effort. The concept of wage has something inherent to it that it is to secure the capitalist and give him a guarantee and certainty to get the required work done…

Few Students and professionals face difficulty while writing a good cover letter, Here I’m attaching the link to a cover letter that I recently tailored for my PhD admission. Feel free to take help from it.

As Humans, we are often interested in how humans interact with each other and with things around them, i.e. commodities and nature. Human relation with themselves and things around always remained a topic of great interest. Today, as most of humans are in a rat race of economic development, raising capital, gathering material goods and developing national egos, there is a dramatic change in relationships of human with other humans (those present today and those who’re yet to come) and nature.

Based upon the idea of Aristotle’s teleological Naturalism, Hegel’s objective idealist view of nature and Feuerbach’s humanist view of…
