Transcendent work or burnout?

October 14, 2021

(15 mins) Comments on Lewis Nathaniel's "Grind culture" article. Nathaniel says "Grind or Hustle culture is a culture of raw achievement where longer and longer hours are not just the norm, they are the metric for success." I agree and consider the implications of what he says about "performative workaholism" and "transcendence." I also consider how his ideas are related to the phenomenon of burnout and the Confucian approach to work. Detailed notes available through the ENG106 course portal.
