AUGUSTO, André Guimarães. Unsubjectivation of work: men as technology object. Rev. econ. contemp. [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp.309-328. ISSN 1980-5527.

The purpose of this paper is to present a critical account of technology on the grounds of Marx's work. Technology is understood as a form of organization of work process under capitalist production relations. Capitalist work process is understood as a dual process of objectivation and unsubjectivation of work. Unsubjectivation of work is the result of application in work process of sciences that have man in its many dimensions as object.

Keywords : technology; work; science.
