Work revisited. the triple perfective dimensions of human work: an Aristotelian perspective.
The term 'work' is today one of the most common words on people's lips all over the world. People talk of going to work, coming from work, looking for work or a job. People leave their families, their homes, and even their children with strangers so as to go to work. Nor is it uncommon to come across people who tell you that they have not had the time to think, be with their spouses, their children, or their friends because of work. Work, therefore, has become a culture of a kind. This paper first focuses on the perfective dimensions of work at the psychic, intellective, volitive, spiritual and material levels, and then moves on to consider work as the apt ambit for the integration of knowledge, ethical and political action and the economic and cultural development of a people or a nation.
