"IdeaLogs" are a series of short, concise expositions of ideas about the world we live in and how it could be made to work better. These ideas are discussed by some of today's leading writers, philosophers, economists, environmentalists and social activists. IdeaLogs, presented in the form of short (1-3 minute) interview segments, are provocative, tasty morsels of thought for educators to use in the classroom as catalysts for discussion, research and thinking. The segments are grouped together by theme into four programs - 6 segments on each. **Included with each program are transcripts, a brief biography and a reading list for each of the speakers represented. Topics of discussion in “The Philosophy of Work” are: 1. The End of Labour with Jeremy Rifkin --- 2. The Absolute CEO with David Korten --- 3. Jobs vs Work with Matthew Fox --- 4. African-American Worker with Jeremy Rifkin --- 5. The Joy of Work with Matthew Fox --- 6. The Social Contract with Jeremy Rifkin
