By Sam Ladkin,Robert McKay,Emile Bojesen

It posits that the auditing of values pervades the material of people’s work-lives, their schooling, and more and more their daily adventure. The ebook uncovers figures of resentment, disenchantment and alienation fostered through the dogma of worth. It argues in its place that worth judgments can behave insidiously, and contain aesthetic, moral or ideological values essentially against the “value” they purportedly identify and describe. the gathering includes contributions from best students within the united kingdom and US with contributions from anthropology, the background of artwork, literature, schooling, musicology, political technology, and philosophy.
