Class Power and Alienated Labor

Samuel Bowles, Herb Gintis

Abstract


In 1844 Karl Marx introduced the concept "alienated labor" into the raging intellectual battles concerning the nature of the emerging capitalist order. Marx was prophetic indeed. In the past few decades, after resting in academic obscurity for nearly a century, the term has been elevated to a central position in social criticism.
