  • - Arbejdets kulturhistorie: Hånd og ånd
    af Richard Sennett
    274,95 kr.

    Selvom ordet ´håndværk´ måske leder tankerne hen på en livsform, der har været aftagende siden begyndelsen af det industrielle samfund, argumenterer Richard Sennett for, at håndværksmæssighed er et aspekt af og en tilgrundlæggende kvalitet ved alle former for arbejde, der rummer blivende værdi. Dermed afgrænser Sennett håndværket - ikke fra det kreative arbejde, men fra alle former for spekulative, abstrakte, ideologiske aspekter i den moderne verden, som først og fremmest tjener til at undertrykke mennesker og natur. Værdien af godt håndværk trænger, betoner Sennett, til at blive fremhævet: computerprogrammører, læger, forældre, kunstnere og borgere har alle brug for det. I sin mest ambitiøse bog til dato udforsker en af vor tids store intellektuelle håndværkets fortid og nutid; hans pointe kommer frem, når han forbinder fysisk arbejde med etiske værdier.I Håndværkeren fører Richard Sennett læseren over tid og rum, fra oldtidens romerske murstensbyggere til renæssancens guldsmede og videre til oplysningstidens bogtrykkere i Paris og industrifabrikkerne i London. Historien har skelnet mellem praksis og teori, teknik og udtryk, håndværker og kunstner, producent og forbruger; det moderne samfund lider stort under denne splittelse mellem hånd og ånd, der er et resultat af denne historiske arv. Men håndværkets og håndværkeres forgangne liv leder også tankerne hen på måder at bruge værktøj, organisere arbejdet og reflektere over livet på. Læst på den måde bliver Håndværkeren en anvisning på, hvordan man kan håndtere livet.Richard Sennett er professor i sociologi ved New York Universitet og London School og Economics. Før han blev sociolog, studerede han musik. Han har fået tildelt megen hæder, senest Hegel-prisen i 2006, for sin præsentation inden for humaniora og samfundsfag.

    Det fleksible menneske - eller arbejdets forvandling og personlighedens nedsmeltning er den fulde titel på Richard Sennetts bog. Hvordan er det muligt at realisere langsigtede mål og værdier, når det moderne samfund og arbejdslivet er helliget det korte sigt og de uendeligt små tidshorisonter? lyder det grundlæggende spørgsmål Sennett stiller.Omdrejningspunktet i Sennetts bog er sammenligningen af før og nu, af tiden før de store omvæltninger omkring 1968 og tiden efter. De to tidsepoker repræsenteres i bogen af Enrico, som er andengenerationsindvandrer fra Italien og hans søn Rico. Med udgangspunkt i Enrico og Ricos livshistorier fremlægger Sennett sine etisk-moralske refleksioner.»Sennetts nye bog redefinerer arbejdet i nutidens fleksible, moderniserede koncerner og viser hvorledes de ansattes tab af værdighed og selvforståelse er en konsekvens af rastløse, tilsyneladende evige forandringer... Værket er en rettesnor for vor epoke«.Daniel Bell, Harward University.»Sennetts til dato vægtigste bog. Et mesterværk«.Die Zeit.

  • - The Rituals, Pleasures and Politics of Cooperation
    af Richard Sennett
    106,95 kr.

    Living with people who differ -- racially, ethnically, religiously, or economically -- is one of the most difficult challenges facing us today. Though our society is becoming ever more complicated materially, we tend to avoid engaging with people unlike ourselves. Modern politics emphasizes unity and similarity, encouraging the politics of the tribe rather than of complexity. Together: the rituals, pleasures and politics of Co-operation explores why this has happened and what might be done about it.Sennett argues that living with people unlike ourselves requires more than goodwill: it requires skill. The foundations for skillful co-operation lie in learning to listen well and to discuss rather than debate. People who develop these capacities earn a reward: they can take pleasure in the company of others. Together traces the evolution of cooperative rituals in medieval churches and guilds, Renaissance workshops and courts, early modern laboratories and diplomatic embassies. In our lives today, it explains the trials and prospects of cooperation online, face-to-face in ethnic conflicts, among financial workers and community organizers.Exploring the nature of cooperation, why it has become weak, and how it could be strengthened, this visionary book offers a new way of seeing how humans can live together.

    Why do people work hard, and take pride in what they do? This book, a philosophically-minded enquiry into practical activity of many different kinds past and present, is about what happens when people try to do a good job. It asks us to think about the true meaning of skill in the 'skills society' and argues that pure competition is a poor way to achieve quality work. Sennett suggests, instead, that there is a craftsman in every human being, which can sometimes be enormously motivating and inspiring - and can also in other circumstances make individuals obsessive and frustrated. The Craftsman shows how history has drawn fault-lines between craftsman and artist, maker and user, technique and expression, practice and theory, and that individuals' pride in their work, as well as modern society in general, suffers from these historical divisions. But the past lives of crafts and craftsmen show us ways of working (using tools, acquiring skills, thinking about materials) which provide rewarding alternative ways for people to utilise their talents. We need to recognise this if motivations are to be understood and lives made as fulfilling as possible.

  • - Ethics for the City
    af Richard Sennett

    'Thank god for Richard Sennett ... essential reading for all students of the city' Anna Minton, Prospect'Constantly stimulating ideas from a veteran of urban thinking' Jonathan Meades, GuardianIn Building and Dwelling, Richard Sennett distils a lifetime's thinking and practical experience to explore the relationship between the good built environment and the good life. He argues for, and describes in rich detail, the idea of an open city, one in which people learn to manage complexity. He shows how the design of cities can enrich or diminish the everyday experience of those who dwell in them.The book ranges widely - from London, Paris and Barcelona to Shanghai, Mumbai and Medellin in Colombia - and draws on classic thinkers such as Tocqueville, Heidegger, Max Weber, and Walter Benjamin. It also draws on Sennett's many decades as a practical planner himself, testing what works, what doesn't, and why. He shows what works ethically is often the most practical solution for cities' problems. This is a humane and thrilling book, which allows us to think freshly about how we live in cities.'Sennett is my kind of urbanist. He sees the modern city. He reads its secrets as he walks down the street, kicking over the detritus of the past ... There is no alternative to the planner, but please a planner who has read Sennett's book' Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times

    THE FALL OF PUBLIC MAN is a book in the great tradition of sociological scholarship. Sennett writes first of the tension between the public and private realms in which we live, arguing that different types of behaviour and activity are appropriate in each. He argues that the barrier between these different realms has been eroded, and that this breakdown is so profound that public man has been left with no certain idea of his role in society. Sennett sees the development of the city as the single most important element of the social change he describes, and puts his argument in its historical perspective through an analysis of the changes in our built environment from the 18th century to the present day.

  • - The Formation of Character in an Age of Inequality
    af Richard Sennett
    148,95 kr.

    In this provocative and timely book, Richard Sennett examines the forces that erode respect in modern society. Respect can be gained by attaining success, by developing talents, through financial independence and by helping others. But, Sennett argues, many who are not able to achieve the demands of today's meritocracy lose the esteem that should be given to them. From his childhood in a poor Chicago housing project to the contrasting methods of care practised by a nun and a social worker, from the harmonious interaction of musicians to the welfare system, Sennett explores the ways in which mutual respect can forge bonds across the divide of inequality.

    Sociologen Richard Sennett kortlægger de vigtigste forskelle mellem tidligere tiders industrikapitalisme og den mere globale og foranderlige form for kapitalisme, der er ved at indtage industrikapitalismens plads. Den nye kapitalismes kultur forudsætter en personlighed, som orienterer sig kortsigtet, fokuserer på potentielle muligheder, snarere end på allerede skabte resultater, og som er villig til at nedskrive eller helt forkaste tidligere erfaringer. Richard Sennett ser som alternativ en mere integreret og konsistent form for personlighed og undersøger, hvilke praktiske initiativer, der kan sættes ind imod "reformernes" skadelige virkninger.
