  Article:   WORK AND LEISURE IN A CONSUMER SOCIETY.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  In contemporary western society, the role of work has been thoroughgoingly changed since the last decennia. In the contribution, I will focus on the role of work in our society by investigating in what way work today can be understood as a radicalisation of reification (Verdinglichung). I state that the discourse about work today is no longer governed by terms of production or economic activity, but is, in fact, a discourse on consumerism and leisure.

Key words: Work, leisure, consumerism, reification, Marxism, phenomenological sociology
