YNOUB, Emanuel. The rationalization of work and its impact in lifestyles: old queries and new reaches of the weberian fundamentals. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1514-6871.
The industrial work has been arduously analyzed by Karl Marx, and his contribution is an unavoidable reference for the different thought currents that followed him in the subject. Max Weber has also studied the industrial work in relation to his concern for the rationalization of the modern world. In this context, we intended to present Weber fundamentals trying to upgrade his view in relation to the great industry as well as to the new production and work forms at the present time. In consequence, we think that these new forms of conceiving the work on the part of the companies are far from recognizing the value of handmade work and its social implication.
