Abstract

This article begins by reconstructing the complex normative background of Marx' critique of capitalistic work. On the basis of this reconstruction, the article argues that a full normative assessment of contemporary work requires the articulation of a double normative perspective combining the norms of justice and autonomy and its differentiated application to two separate spheres in which work matters: the labour market and the workplace. The rich normative model that is thus set up is then used to critically examine the two major directions in contemporary political philosophy: namely, liberalism and republicanism. The paper seeks to highlight the limitations of these two strands of contemporary political philosophy in their treatment of work issues.
