How will we work in the future? What happens to us when our jobs disappear? Do we have any influence on these questions or does the market regulate everything? The philosopher Lisa Herzog gives new answers to one of the most significant questions of our time - and makes important suggestions for better public policy.
The world of work is becoming closer to scenarios in science fiction, and artificial intelligence and robots are increasingly taking on menial work. The result is financial worry that plays into the hands of populists. However, the future of work is not decided by fate; it is led by political strategy, which extends far beyond an unconditional basic income. It can and must be addressed with courage. Work holds societies together; it is something fundamentally human. Lisa Herzog shows how things can be fairer and more democratic in digital times than they ever were - for everyone, not just the privileged few. A groundbreaking book.
