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

By Agamenon R. E. Oliveira

This book lines the historical past of the idea that of labor from its earliest phases and exhibits that its extra 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 laptop operation is particularly previous and has been expressed through many mathematicians and philosophers resembling, for example, Aristotle. hence, an idea of strength constructed. one other important idea in desktop operation is Archimedes' lever principle.

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