ABSTRACT

Production as a human work is the uniquely human capacity to constitute the cultural world. This cultural meaning of the production was changed in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. Human work has since been regarded as a commercialized and alienated mechanical mechanism. As a new industrial revolution, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is also unlikely to change this basic trend. Rather, it is expected that this trend will be accelerated due to its technical feature. Today, human work is at the greatest risk, and this danger asks us to reflect on its fundamental meaning. As long as production is understood as a process of making commodities, human work would not be restored as cultural contents.
