Presentation: While we hear about work and all the related topics - employment, unemployment, wages, etc. - every day. - it seems that this theme belongs essentially to politicians, economists and the media. Strangely enough, when we ask the philosopher, the first question that it seems appropriate to ask him is: "What is work? ». As if, in the end, everyone else was talking about something they didn't know about while passing for specialists. Unless to question the very definition of work is to take a small step back and take the time to give yourself the conceptual tools necessary to think about work today. But here begin the difficulties: is there only a definition of work? Is there anything common to all types of trades or jobs that would identify the object "work"? In fact, if we ask the philosopher, we must expect that, far from giving an easy answer that will solve all the problems, we will take the risk of finding ourselves faced with other questions that, at least, may be the first urgency to face in order to give ourselves something to think about.
