A very unique approach to philosophy, to put it mildly.

Divides human life into three spheres: labor, action, and work. Describes the evolution of these three concepts, using historical examples from philosophy. Not an easy book, but a very stimulating one.

Ian Cantankeroo-Gazan I must read this. I am a bit embarrassed that I forgot to mention it in my review of "Homo Faber":


Hadrian And I must read Homo Faber. It sounds fascinating.
