Abstract

According to three philosophical traditions that follow theses of Aristotle, Luther and Marx, work has been defined under the “product paradigm” and as a “shifting notion”: it lacks a philosophical and anthropological definition and it has been frequently explained as opposed to human excellence. This study offers a definition of human work following some proposals of Alasdair MacIntyre, such as the notion of practice and our dependent and vulnerable condition. It also challenges some modern and negative views on manual work, bodily needs and the meaning of everyday life.
