DESKILLING AND DOWNSIZING: SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION


At each moment of history, the happiness that we can
achieve is limited. If the division of labor had no other
causes, it would then be quickly arrested once the limit of
happiness had been reached. This limit recedes, it is true,
as man changes. But these changes, assuming that they do
make us happier, are not produced with a view to such a
result, since, for a long period, they are painful and
without compensation.

— Emile Durkheim

The Division of Labor in Society, 1893
