David Frayne

David Frayne is a writer and social researcher, investigating the social, ethical and political dimensions of our work-centred societies and beyond. He is currently contributing in his capacity as a sociologist to a project on ‘The Hard Problem’ in the Berggruen Fellows Program at New York University. The project explores how to think about ethics, politics and social relations in a world where work is in crisis. He is the author of The Refusal of Work (Zed, 2015) and the editor of The Work Cure (PCCS, forthcoming) – two books which question the inevitability of societies structured around the institution of employment, exploring the normative and practical obstacles to an alternative.
