Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

With this volume, author and sociologist Sennett (The Culture of the New Capitalism) launches a three-book examination of "material culture," asking "what the process of making concrete things reveals to us about ourselves." Taking in everything from Pandora and Hephaestus to Linux programmers, Sennett posits that the spirit of craftsmanship-an "enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake"-is tragically lacking in many areas of the industrialized world. Craftsmanship, by combining skill, commitment and judgment, establishes a close relationship between head and hand, man and machine, that Sennett asserts is vital to physical, mental and societal well-being; the symptoms of craftsmanship-deficiency can be found in worker demoralization, inefficiency and waning loyalty from both employees and employers, as well as other (largely institutional) effects. Sennett looks at the evolution of craftsmanship and the historical forces which have stultified it, how it's learned in the areas it still thrives (among scientists, artists, cooks, computer programmers and others), and issues of quality and ability (skill, not talent, makes a craftsman). Sennett's learned but inclusive prose proves entirely readable, and the breadth of his curiosity-delving into the minds behind the Manhattan project, touring Soviet suburbs, examining the methods of Julia Childs-take him in a number of fascinating directions.

Pressestimmen

"In The Craftsman [Sennett] compellingly explores the universe of skilled work, where 'the desire to do a job well done for its own sake' still flourishes."--Brian C. Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"An inquiring, intelligent look at how the work of the hand informs the work of the mind."--New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)
"Sennett looks at the evolution of craftsmanship and the historical forces which have stultified it, how it's learned in the areas it still thrives, and issues of quality and ability. Sennett's learned but inclusive prose proves entirely readable, and the breadth of his curiosity . . . take him in a number of fascinating directions."--Publishers Weekly

"Eloquent and persuasive."--Scott Nesbit, Culture


"The Craftsman is [an] ambitious, thought-provoking look at how we humans connect with, relate to, and understand the world around us."--Wayne Curtis, American Scholar
"Craftsman is a fairly concrete, unvarnished word that Mr. Sennett gilds and bejewels with virtue and history. For Mr. Sennett, craftsmanship 'represents the special human condition of being engaged, ' and ideal marriage of 'hand to head' that crowns technical mastery with a person's sincerest efforts to make something well for its own sake. This would be dizzily heady stuff if Mr. Sennett's book weren't so prodigiously grounded in stuff itself as a means of knowledge."--Jeremy Axelrod, New York Sun
"I am confident that as Sennett continues his quest to make sense of life and work, those of us who study the digital age will find it worthwhile to pay more attention to his body of work."--Siva Vaidhyanathan, The Chronicle Review
"This book challenges our thinking and understanding concerning how we create work and workplaces, and how we make social and political choices about what we produce and consume. Sennett reaches out to the craftsman in all of us."--James H. Dulebohn, People & Strategy
"Richard Sennett is one of the most eminent and prolific sociologists in the Western world. . . . [His readers] are led gradually and effortlessly into a special world, only to find themselves enthralled by an author who stimulates and fascinates at every turn."--Daisaburo Hashizume, The American Interest
"A far-roving intellectual adventure."--Julian Bell, New York Review of Books
"A far-ranging meditation on everything involved in the labor of shaping things patiently, by hand. . . . Sennett's synthesis of history, aesthetics, and psychology reminds us of the slow, deep rhythms involved in building and sustaining a culture."--Scott McLemme, Barnes & Noble Review
"[Sennett's] range of examples is nothing short of astounding. He offers us fascinating and insightful discussions."--Nicholas Wolterstorff, Books & Culture
"This is a discursive, intellectually stimulating and often fascinating discussion that at times seems like an engaged, elevating conversation."--William Kowinski, NorthCoast Journal
"The good news elevating The Craftsman from a delightful to an encouraging read is Sennett's conviction that 'nearly anyone can become a good craftsman.'"--Patrick McCormick, U.S. Catholic
"[Sennett] presents a wealth of material. He discusses his topic using an elegant literary style and does not simply tick his points off like the instruction leaflet in a package of medicine. . . . Interesting and true insights captivate the reader."--Ralf Jeremias, Working USA
A 2008 Top Seller in Philosophy as compiled by YBP Library Services
Selected as one of the best books of 2008 by Scott McLemee of Barnes & Noble Review
Richard Sennett is the winner of the 2010 Spinoza Prize, sponsored by the International Spinoza Award Foundation

"As Richard Sennett makes clear in this lucid and compelling book, craftsmanship once connected people to their work by conferring pride and meaning. The loss of craftsmanship--and of a society that values it--has impoverished us in ways we have long forgotten but Sennett helps us understand."--Robert B. Reich, Professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley, and author of Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life
