The question of whether work is an alienation or not is a major anthropological and political issue. For if man in general needs work to live and dominate nature, he does so only through particular forms of work, many of which, in the capitalist regime, are alienating, as Marx has established. They prevent the productive worker from flourishing in his activity and, above all, they mutilate his life, hindering the realization of his natural potentialities, making him different from what he could be under other conditions, alien to himself. It is therefore undoubtedly beyond the sole work, in creative activity, that man can access true freedom.
