內容簡介

金融時報社會議題選書


暢銷作家、美國知名人類學家大衛‧格雷伯,繼《為什麼上街頭》、《債的歷史》後,再次為讀者帶來震撼之作!

你有想過自己的工作其實是個無用的工作嗎?

2013年,格雷伯以「無用職業的現象」(On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs)為題,在STRIKE!雜誌發表了一篇論文,隨後文章點閱率超過百萬,受到全球至少有七個語言區的讀者熱烈討論。

格雷伯指出,人資、溝通、電商研究等文書行政工作,都是無用的工作,格雷伯認為從業人員自己也都很清楚自己的工作是沒有意義的,但為何在過去一世紀中,沒有生產力的人口突增,有生產力的人口反而減少了?

格雷伯在這本書中則是分析這樣的現象,並說明無用工作的崛起和其造成的後果,給個人、公司機構、社會不同角度的看法,藉此重新檢視工作的價值。

From bestselling writer David Graeber, a powerful argument against the rise of meaningless, unfulfilling jobs, and their consequences.

Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs.” It went viral. After a million online views in seventeen different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer.

There are millions of people—HR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyers—whose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs.

Graeber explores one of society’s most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation.
