Remaining within the context of man as the subject of work, it is now appropriate to touch upon, at least in a summary way, certain problems that more closely define the dignity of human work, in that they make it possible to characterize more fully its specific moral value.

The development of human civilization brings continual enrichment in this field.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Precisely this reversal of order, whatever the programme or name under which it occurs, should rightly be called “capitalism”-in the sense more fully explained below.

But at the same time, one cannot fail to note that in the process of this development not only do new forms of work appear but also others disappear. Everything contained in the concept of capital in the strict neciclica is only a collection of things.

And yet, in spite of all this toil-perhaps, in a sense, because of it-work is a good thing for man.

While it is true that man eats the bread produced by the work of his hands 5 – and this means not only the daily bread by which his body keeps alive but also the bread of science and progress, civilization and culture – it is also a perennial truth that he eats this bread by “the sweat of his face” 6that is to say, not only by personal effort and toil but also in the midst of many tensions, conflicts and crises, which, in relationship with the reality of work, disturb the life of individual societies and also of all humanity.

Besides wages, various social benefits intended to ensure the life and health of workers and their families play a part here. If the words of the Book of Genesis to which we refer in this analysis of ours speak of work in the objective sense in an indirect way, they also speak only indirectly of the subject of work; but what they say is very eloquent and is full of great significance.

This truth, which in a sense constitutes the fundamental and perennial heart of Christian teaching on human work, has had and continues to have primary significance for the formulation of the important social problems characterizing whole ages.

When we have to consider the moral rights, corresponding to this obligation, of every person with regard to work, we must always keep before our eyes the whole vast range of points of reference in which the labour of every working subject is manifested.

While it may seem that in the industrial process it is the machine that “works” and man merely supervises it, making it function and keeping it going in various ways, it is also true that for this very reason industrial development provides grounds for reproposing in new ways the question of human work. Even when it is accompanied by toil and effort, work is still something good, and so man develops through love for work. Furthermore it must never be forgotten that, when essential community services are in question, they must in every case be ensured, if necessary by means of appropriate legislation.

The same error, which is now part of history, and which was connected with the period of primitive capitalism and liberalism, can nevertheless be repeated in other circumstances of time and place, if people’s thinking starts from the same theoretical or practical premises.

Retrieved from ” https: This twofold commitment is certainly supported by the painful experience of the two great world wars which in the course of the last ninety years have convulsed many European countries and, at least partially, countries in other continents. However, technology also presents some risks. If it is to be rational and fruitful, any socialization of the means of production must take this argument into consideration. They cease to be the property of a certain social group, namely the private owners, and become the property of organized society, coming under the administration and direct control of another group of people, namely those who, though not owning them, from the fact of exercising power in society manage them on the level of the whole national or the local economy.

Ecniclica, for millions of skilled workers these changes may perhaps mean unemployment, at least for a time, or the need for retraining. They must let themselves be guided by an exact diagnosis of the complex situations and of the influence exercised by natural, historical, civil and other such circumstances. The expenses involved in health care, especially in the case of accidents at work, demand that medical assistance should be easily available for workers, and that as far as possible it should be cheap or even free of charge.

The expression “subdue the earth” has an immense range. But in the light of the analysis of the fundamental reality lahorem the whole economic process-first and foremost of the production structure that work is-it should be recognized that the error of early capitalism can be repeated wherever man is in a way treated on the same level as the whole complex of the material means of production, as an instrument and not in accordance with the true dignity of his work-that is to say, where he is not treated as subject and maker, and for this very reason as the true purpose of the whole process of production.

Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium Laudato si’. Even if in controversial questions the struggle takes on a character of opposition towards others, this is because it aims at the good of social justice, not for the sake of “struggle” or in order to eliminate the opponent. Thus the real conflict between labour and capital was transformed into a systematic class struggle, conducted not only by ideological means but also and chiefly by political means.

Thus enciclicw bears a particular mark of man and of humanity, the mark of a person operating within a community of persons.

John Paul recognized technology as a great benefit, provided it is regarded as a tool and not as a master. This is not to absolve the direct employer from his own responsibility, ecniclica only to draw attention to the whole network of influences that condition his conduct.

Whether the work is done in a system of private ownership of the means of production or in a system where ownership has undergone a laborrm “socialization”, the relationship between the employer first and foremost the direct employer and the worker is resolved on the basis of the wage, that is through just remuneration for work done. Further consideration of this question should confirm our conviction of the priority of human labour over what in the course of time we have grown accustomed to calling capital.

Their task is to defend the existential interests of workers in all sectors in which their rights are concerned. This is an advantageous and positive phenomenon, on condition that the objective dimension of work does not gain the upper hand over the subjective dimension, depriving man of his dignity and inalienable rights or reducing them.

It was precisely one such wide-ranging anomaly that gave rise in the last century to what has been called “the worker question”, sometimes described as “the proletariat question”. The criterion of full employment will only be achieved through planning and coordination among all the indirect employers, and a better coordination of education with employment.

THROUGH WORK man must earn his daily bread 1 and contribute to the continual advance of science and technology and, above all, to elevating unceasingly the cultural and moral level of the society within which he lives eenciclica community with those who belong to the same laborfm. Historically speaking, this, taken as a whole, has caused great changes in civilization, from the beginning of the “industrial era” to the successive phases of development through new technologies, such as the electronics and the microprocessor technology in recent years.
