A History of the Work Concept: From Physics to Economics: 24 by Agamenon R. E. Oliveira

By Agamenon R. E. Oliveira

This book strains the background of the concept that of labor from its earliest levels and indicates that its additional formalization results in equilibrium precept and to the main of digital works, and so pointing the best way forward for destiny learn and applications.

The concept that whatever continues to be consistent in a computer operation is especially outdated and has been expressed through many mathematicians and philosophers reminiscent of, for example, Aristotle. therefore, an idea of power built. one other important idea in computer operation is Archimedes' lever principle.

In sleek occasions the idea that of labor is analyzed within the context of utilized mechanics often in Lazare Carnot mechanics and the mechanics of the hot new release of polytechnical engineers like Navier, Coriolis and Poncelet. during this context the be aware "work" is ultimately followed. those engineers also are accountable for the incorporation of the idea that of labor into the self-discipline of economics after they endeavoured to mix the study of the paintings of machines and males together.
