This is the page about my book, released in June 2007 by the Idéias & Letras publishing house, Work and Identity in Dark Times.



From analysis of the sense of meaning that work acquired in modern times, as one of the main points of reference of personal identity, the book seeks to understand how, in postmodernity, the arrangement between work and identity was being dismantled little by little, why this happened, and what its consequences are regarding the formation of identity today.

The result is a broad map of the history of work in the West and its cultural and identity-related representations.
