Abstract:
This thesis argues that the technology-accelerated pace of living and working driven by market conditions of 'flexible accumulation' (Harvey) makes meaningful existence and fulfilment at work ever more difficult. It addresses how the ideals of the new economy influence the individual and the difficulties this poses in relation to identity-making in a late-capitalist context.
