Cognition and Work

  • Robert Sweeney
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 14)


The title of this essay is taken from a long monograph ‘Erkenntnis und Arbeit’ first published by Max Scheler in Die Wissensformen und die Gesellschaft1 and recently reissued as a separate book.2 The juxtaposition of themes in the title is not a common one in phenomenology: the question of knowledge is, of course, pervasive, but work or labor has received only passing attention, and this makes Scheler’s undertaking still something of a pioneering effort.
