What Work Does to Us All

I’ve been thinking recently about the psychological effects that work has on us as people. I’ve surely emphasized the physical aspects time and time again in this blog, but I think focusing on some of the deeper issues that are less seen and thus less talked about could be fruitful as well.

I’ve talked before about noted Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and his ideas on idleness and boredom. Those excerpts came from a book entitled Either/Or: A Fragment of Life that focuses on how to live an ethical life.
