Chapter 13 The sociology of work:
Transformation of work Self development:
Means under the ideal workers has responsibility for these things: skilled workers do
whole tasks, (one worker manufacturing one whole product) industrial revolution
division of labour narrows tasks, no self development anymore.
Craft ideal overtime ppl developed skills progressively.
Developactualize(realize potential under the ideal) comes from Maslow hierarchy
of needs.
Marks species being, Maslow self actualization . same thing.
The self the mind, an abstract category tht refers to person hood. Never actually
see a self.
Creative work makes the self visible, gives the self: substance, form and extension
in the things it creates only can judge the sef by the things it creates or
performance (ie midterm mark).
Innovations put to efficient use. Effcientcy productivity , making the most and
highest quality for the least effort, labour power. More high quality product and least
use of energy, thats efficient.
Rationalization and efficientcy is the ideal norm. how can make this product in the
most cost effective way?
- theyll go bankrupt if yu are not efficient.
Adam Smith:
production has to be redesigned, craft operations mostly disappear. Division of
labour narrows sequential interdependence (create hundreds of thousands of
micro jobs, jobs are interlinked, A B C , b cant do job if A hadnt, yu create inter
coordination.) now you have the need of managers and supervisors to manage the
work or others and supervise the work of others. Yu have to coordinate their work.
