Event description

Description

In the 19th century, Max Weber published The Protestant Work Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, which linked Protestantism and Capitalism in the public’s mind. As we look to a future where the role of work in life may change dramatically as a function of artificial intelligence, outsourcing, robotics and the ‘gig’ economy, this panel discussion will focus on the role of work in our lives and our search for meaning in the 21st century. It will also touch on how these changes may affect capitalism. This discussion is part of the St Paul’s Cathedral series on the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

Speakers Include:

Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics
Nicholas Srnicek, Lecturer in the Digital Economy, Kings College London
