About this product
- DescriptionOver the course of the twentieth century, we have separated mental work from manual labour, replacing the workshop with either the office cubicle or the factory line. This book explores the dangers of this false distinction and presents instead the case for working with your hands.
- Author BiographyMatthew Crawford is a philosopher and mechanic. He has a Ph.D. in political philosophy from the University of Chicago and served as a postdoctoral fellow on its Committee on Social Thought. Currently a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia, he also runs Shockoe Moto, an independent motorcycle repair shop.
