Philosophical Influences on Unions and the Labor Movement
October 4, 2011, 12 Noon at Poplars Room 630, 400 East 7th Street
Labor unions didn't come out of the blue. They emerged from the conditions and ideas of modern society. Unions took shape around ideas of liberty, exploitation, contract, syndicalism, democracy, and globalism that philosophers took up and fashioned in ways labor movements found useful. Professor Milton Fisk, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, IU.
