Details of the next “Inner West Council Philosophy Talk"

Title: “Work in a Free Society“

Speaker: Prof Nicholas H. Smith (Macquarie)

Abstract:  Many people are anxious about work. Some are worried about the increasingly demanding nature of work, some by the lack of secure, meaningful employment, and others by the prospect of robots taking all the jobs. The changing character of work invites us to rethink the place of work in our lives, and to ask how work would look in a genuinely free society. This talk will look at some options for thinking about this question.
