Work Meets Life succeeds admirably.

Work Meets Life succeeds admirably. Work Meets Life is an exemplary collaboration of minds. Novel and thought-provoking. Goes beyond the classical concepts of work as defined in physics.

Robert Levin is Director and Fellow of the Center for the Integrative Study of Work (CISW) at the University of Colorado at Boulder and in the university's Graduate School. MIT Press began publishing journals in 1970 with the first volumes of Linguistic Inquiry and the Journal of Interdisciplinary History. Today we publish over 30 titles in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and science and technology. Work as fundamental to life, explored at different levels of organization from the perspectives of a variety of biological and nonbiological disciplines.

Living organisms are (strongly out-of-equilibrium) systems relative to their physical or abiotic surroundings. They can only survive and maintain their status by constantly exchanging energy and matter with their environments.

Davanti a lui la folla dei postulanti avanzava lenta, molti leggevano il giornale, alcuni ascoltavano musica o notizie in cuffia. Narciso, come al solito, si guardava intorno, in cerca di uno specchio o di una qualche superficie riflettente. La sua immagine gli mancava. Ma quel giorno era tormentato da un assillo nuovo. By addressing how work gets done, and why, from the perspectives of a range of disciplines, including cell and evolutionary biology, neuroscience, psychology, electrical and computer engineering, and design, the volume sets out to establish an integrative approach to the study of work. Chapters introduce the biological work of producing energy.

Work as fundamental to life, explored at different levels of organization from the perspectives of a variety of biological and nonbiological disciplines.

The work performed by living systems ranges from photosynthesis to prodigious feats of computation and organization. This multidisciplinary volume explores the relationships between work and the study of work across many different levels of organization. By addressing how work gets done, and why, from the perspectives of a range of disciplines, including cell and evolutionary biology, neuroscience, psychology, electrical and computer engineering, and design, the volume sets out to establish an integrative approach to the study of work.Chapters introduce the biological work of producing energy in the cell; establish inherent tradeoffs between energy and information in neural systems; relate principles of integrated circuit manufacture to work in biological systems; explore the work of photosynthesis; investigate how work shapes organisms' evolutionary niches; consider the human work of design; describe the effects of job satisfaction and dissatisfaction on work-life balance; and address the effects of environmental challenges (stress) on how humans and animals do work. Finally, editors and contributors draw these studies together and point to future developments.
