Capitalism, Labor and the Totalising Drive of Technology

The latest article published by Kammari research group: Capitalism Labor and the Totalising Drive of Technology – by Niklas Toivakainen.

Abstract:
In this paper I try to illustrate, quite roughly and indicatively, the interconnections between automation technology and social organization. Central to this analysis are the notions of automation, increased productivity in a capitalist society, labor, equality, global inequality and the modern culture of technology. I will end the paper with brief critical remarks on the question of ‘robot rights’.
