Fundamentally, the frustrating bit is Sennett’s reluctance to outline and provide the premise where the intrinsic, non-teleological and practical virtues but also merits of craftsmanship are found to be relevant. This cannot be reduced to motivation ricjard that is central. Machines mostly replace workers doing dull, repetitive, and often dangerous work. He gets away with this because his powers of description and analysis are at times acute to the point of being sublime.

Add to watch list. Anyone with much knowledge of the sciences will be irritated by Sennett’s tenuous grasp of basic scientific principles. As a good establishment figure he starts by going back to the classics quoting Aristotle from his Metaphysics: Sennett goes beyond current knowledge on creativity, art, play, education value and tacit knowledge.

Is education something to be mass-designed and delivered via automatic tools and program – or a craft to be custom-designed and delivered by a pro?

He methodically unwraps the process of learning and instruction — e, section I personally found to be so insightful I ended up reading repetitively.

Questions that have gotten under my skin — but unfortunately they are not questions I have ready answers for. Truly, Sennett’s total project is an ambitious one; and ‘The Craftsman’ here represents a powerful but nevertheless, a perplexing beginning to his critique of material culture.

These are things that are increasingly annoying me. I looked in the work of others for ways to improve my own. Nov 26, Kim Zinkowski rated it it was amazing.

Sennett has explored more positive aspects of labor in The Craftsman [], and in Together: Even now with most people doing office jobs that are mediated with words, the recognition of way of knowing and communicating riichard in a corporeal oralacy persists.


There is less romance than practical good here. Get the item you ordered or get your money back.

But then he goes much deeper. For readers who want to know more about the theme of craftsmanship–a certainly underappreciated theme neglected by those who think and ironically despised by those who do–then this book is a real gem. These are widely diffused amongst human beings rather than restricted to an elite. No trivia or quizzes yet. Through it all, he shows how the ‘closed city’ – segregated, regimented, and controlled – has spread from the global North to the exploding urban agglomerations of the global South.


It is those hurts that often give rise to the emotional mismanagement of our selves.
