Losing Touch: The Cultural Conditions of Worker Accommodation and Resistance
This chapter examines the influence of the Western intellectual model on the cultural conditions of worker accommodation and resistance. It argues that the transformation of work into its modern Western form was the result of deliberate attempts to take control of process and product from the worker. It suggests that the factory does not impress contemporary Westerners as a curtailment of freedom since it is because people have grown used to this particular form of repression.
