Informations and abstract

Keywords: Digital Revolution; Work; Technologies; Political Philosophy; Socioeconomics.

Mari critically considers the kind of concepts McAffe and Brynjolfsson employ in their understanding of digital revolution and points to some issues concerning the concept of «work». Mori shows the absence of and the need for a framework, to be developed within the field of political philosophy, that allows to consider the consequences of the technological evolution described by McAffe and Brynjolfsson. Fadini analyses McAffe and Brynjolfsson' thesis about the technological progress concerning work processes, focusing in particular on the dimension of the cognitive workforce.
