In "Labor of Fire, " Bruno Gull1/4 offers a timely and much needed re-examination of the concept of labor. Distinguishing between productive labor (working for money or subsistence) and living labor (working for artistic creation), Gull1/4 convincingly argues for a definition of work that recognizes the importance of artistic and social creativity to our definition of labor and the self.
Gull1/4 lays the groundwork for his book by offering a critique of productive labor, and then maps out his productive/living labor distinction in detail, reviewing the work of Marx and others.

Can work exist outside of capitalism?From the Back Cover:
"My sense is that Gullý's work (along with that of a few other young scholars) will renew once again the Marxist tradition. This will not be a scientific Marxism or a humanist Marxism or a structuralist Marxism. It is rather a very philosophical approach to Marx that is nonetheless centered on the concept of labor and its power of social transformation." —Michael Hardt, Duke University
