Re: UPDATE: Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman by Peter Korn

I am a sociologist and often talk to my students about the key work done by the early sociologists on the sense of alienation felt by many factory workers towards their work during the industrial revolution. Their creativity and internal voice was often silenced by the hum of progress! I believe that the post modern rat race we find ourselves co-constructing each day, often against our wishes, is leading to the same sense of alienation, not just from work but from life. Woodwork is vital to keep us grounded and I would expect this book will touch off some of these issues. Cormac
