P.S. 日本国民の三大義務に労働が入っていますが、これがキリスト教の影響なのかは不明です。




< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「義務」 = 「obligation




「日本国民の三大義務」を英語で表現する場合、「The Three Major Obligations of Japanese Citizens」とすればよいですね😊。

PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 1,366 "Difference between Labor & Work"

Japan is now in the long holiday season.


In my case, I am reading many books (although I always read 😊).


I have read the books of Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, the most famous of which is “Norwegian Wood”.


Among the characters appearing in "Norwegian Wood", the most impressive one was Mr. Nagasawa's comment of "difference between labor and effort".


According to Mr. Nagasawa, “What most people in the world do is work, not effort.”


In the material introduced today, “The Human Condition,” Hannah Arendt divides human behavior into three parts: labor, work, and activity.


While Arendt argues about the essence of each, she criticizes modern society by arguing that it has placed great importance on “labor” and has gradually narrowed the spheres of "work" and "activity."


Arendt says that the spread of Christianity was the reason why humans were forced to labor.


Arendt also says that Christianity's emphasis on life made it compulsory to labor to sustain life.


Labor is one of the three major responsibilities of Japanese citizens, but it is unclear whether this is due to the influence of Christianity.


I've been reading a lot of philosophy books lately, and I'm learning a lot😊.


Let's function PDCA today!
