NYT magazine had a great article this past weekend by Matthew B. Crawford titled The Case For Working With Your Hands. Crawford has a Ph.D. in political philosophy but shortly after finishing his post-doc work went into business for himself as a motorcycle mechanic. His piece discusses different styles of learning and working, and is an excerpt from his book Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work, to be released this week. Looking forward to picking up a copy.
