Abstract

In questo saggio intendiamo discutere la questione del tempo libero nel capitalismo alla luce della problematica della liberazione dal e del lavoro (par. 1). Nel far ciò, dopo aver criticato la concezione dell’essere umano propria della scienza economica, proporremo l’abbozzo di una concezione alternativa (par. 2). Ci chiederemo quindi cosa succederebbe liberando sic et simpliciter del tempo attraverso mere elargizioni di reddito senza rimettere in discussione la concezione dell’essere umano comunemente accettata (par. 3) per poi proporre (par. 4) due real utopias che affrontano congiuntamente il nodo dell’aumento del tempo libero e dell’apertura a forme differenti di società. Infine (par. 5) saranno tratte alcune brevi ma articolate conclusioni. (In this essay we intend to discuss the issue of leisure time in the capitalist system in the light of the issue of the liberation from and of work (par. 1). In doing that, after having criticized the conception of human being wich characterized economics we will propose the sketch of an alternative conception (par. 2). Then, we will wonder what would happen releasing sic et simpliciter some spare time through mere income transferts, without bringing into question the commonly accepted conception of human being (par. 3) to then propose (par. 4) two ‘real utopias’ that jointly deal with the tangle of an increase of leisure time and the opening to different forms of society. Finally (par. 5) some brief but articulated conclusions will be drawn.)
