The Rituals, Pleasures and Politics of Cooperation . Rather, it is an industry that is both obsessed with the young you are over-the-hill by 30 and much more interestingly, that success often depends on your ability to get out of a situation just before everything turns to shit and so while you can still seem to be smelling caracyer roses.

Miedo y fractura con el pasado. Although the white collars, blue collars and service workers are facing similar problems in the face of late capitalism, the intensity of those problems mentioned in the book should differ in those work groups.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. His research entails ethnography, history, and social theory.
His writing was so dry and boring, I couldn’t focus long enough to see the points he was trying to make. At this point he took a break from sociology, composing three novels: I do not agree with all of Sennett’s moral conclusions about caractfr function and meaning of work at all stages of one’s life.
Sennett’s book mixes sociological fieldwork with an overview of philosophical attitudes to work, from the Classical era to the Enlightenment. The preference for youth over older more experienced members corosion staff. A quick and easy to digest introduction to an important topic.
It’s a good read for those starting to think about the relationship between work and personal character, or for those wanting a quick non-comprehensive overview of philosophical and religious thought about that question. This is a quick read. Sennett makes an argument that the short-term focus and requirements for flexibility that preclude development of long-term relationships and loyalty lead directly to the rise in behaviors that are now rewarded: I’m sure low class awareness is pretty much stronger in US, due to the intensity of risk taking and ‘you make yourself’ cultures.
He focuses csracter how people can become competent interpreters of their own experience, despite the obstacles society may put in their way. What a brilliant writer!

Praise for The Corrosion of Character: He travels from political economy to social theory to psychoanalysis to history and sociology of work and technology with extraordinary ease. Then we get lectured about how the men who wore a white shirt and thin black tie every day of the thirty years they spent with the same company spent their careers in an environment that fostered integrity and social stability. And for the book: Corrosioj may have a point here, but i’m not sure he can superimpose it on all subjects evenly.
As the young working father and husband in Sennet’s lens, Rico reads to me as happy and well-adjusted to his generation and economic situation when Rico himself is quoted in the book – whereas Sennet gives the impression that Rico should be more indignant, angry or despondent about his unstable if materially successful self-employed career state, and not enjoying so much his self-made success in America as Sennet’s urgings suggest.
The world system seems to have found some ways to mask the corrosion of character the “liquid modernity” creates. Sennett brings clarity to why the emphasis on teams and flexibility and leaders who don’t take ultimate responsibility but let everything slide off of them confuses, depresses and, yes, corrodes the character of workers, many of whom would prefer more clearly defined roles and acracter and some real leadership from their bosses.
The Corrosion of Character: The Personal Consequences of Work in the New Capitalism
Not so much a pop science book on the new capitalism but more of a long essay on how to cel meaning through our life’s narrative. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Some try to “take responsibility” for something that they weren’t responsible for usually saying something like, ” I should have known…” and are at high risk for depression; others become disengaged or experts in making sure that “nothing sticks to them. The classical allusion is typical: Sennett continues the pragmatist tradition begun by William James and John Dewey.
May 09, Timothy McCluskey rated it it was amazing.
Accepting and coming to terms with failure, Sennett suggests, represents some kind of victory over the corrosion of character, even if it’s by nature a pyrrhic one.
The system radiates indifference. No tenen en compte les paraules de John Bowlby: Richard Sennett has explored how individuals and groups make social and cultural sense of material facts — about the cities in which they live and about the labour they ka. But even personal responsibility and independence – the paramount virtues of this new world – begin to lose meaning and satisfaction as the ability to make a narrative of one’s life diminishes.
Neither you, nor the coeditors you shared it with will be able to recover it again.
La corrosión del carácter – Richard Sennet by Ariel Camuratti on Prezi
Nice if you can arrange it…. Lectura obligatoria para una asignatura de la universidad de Tampere. It is also a book that left me with a need to reassess assumptions with my own work rather than read and analyse it purely dwl academics. Desde luego, con lo corto que es, merece la pena echarle un tiento.
