“Is meaning the new money?”

AUD 15.00 — Released 5 May 2014

For the average person, ‘work’ consumes no less than 80,000 hours of their life. However this fi gure represents but a fraction of the actual time devoted to work - our labouring hours extend far beyond physically being there. We must get ready for, commute to, fret over, discuss and bemoan our work. We attend work functions, ‘connect’ from afar and shop for work paraphernalia from ties to boots, hammers to phones.

Work consumes our time and thoughts; work defines how we perceive ourselves and others; it is the cornerstone of our achievements and failures.

And yet. Is work inevitable? Are we, as Hannah Arendt suggests, animal laborans, the labouring animal? Are we really condemned to a lifetime of work?
