The Idea of Work

The Idea of Work

This paper explores some of the different approaches to work, in particular the concepts of work that shape the thinking of many Indians. The purpose is not only to analyse what work is, but to change the concept of work. It is argued that while work is a crucial element in all societies we need a vision of what work should be like. An approach to the idea of work, based on an understanding of Indian philosophy and its interpretation by Gandhi, is presented here.
