Portuguese Journal of Social Science
This article presents several results of the author’s ten-year research into the world of work at the end of the twentieth century and at the dawn of the 21st, and is also a contribution to the sociology of modern work. The article focuses on current divisions and boundaries in the sociology of work, reflects on the post-Taylor paradigms in modern work, work in the digital age and work in networks, and depicts the logic and organization of modern work in services. The article ends with a reflection on the current issues involved in a specific phenomenon: the ‘servicelization’ of modern work.
