The Story of Work

Work, the Greeks, like the Hebrews, regarded work as a curse. The Greek word for work: “Ponos” meant sorrow. I think some modern office workers would agree with this definition.

Philosophers such as Plato & Aristotle made it clear that the purpose for which the majority of men laboured was in “order that the minority, the elite, might engage in pure exercises of  mind – art, such as philosophy and politics.”
