Description - The End of Work by John Hughes

Surveys twentieth century theologies of work, contrasting differing approaches to consider the "problem of labor" from a theological perspective. * Aimed at theologians concerned with how Christianity might engage in social criticism, as well those who are interested in the connection between Marxist and Christian traditions * Explores debates about labor under capitalism and considers the relationship between divine and human work * Through a thorough reading of Weber's Protestant Work Ethic, argues that the triumph of the "spirit of utility" is crucial to understanding modern notions of work * Draws on the work of various twentieth century Catholic thinkers, including Josef Pieper, Jacques Maritain, Eric Gill, and David Jones * Published in the new and prestigious Illuminations series.
